Change-A-Life is a scheme with mission to act as a bridge between people with potential, yet great need and the people, agencies and organizations that have the capacity to help and are willing to help these people. The scheme which is solely not for profit was founded by Funmi Iyanda in 2002.
Since 2002, Change-A-Life has been involved in intervening in the lives of vibrant, talented, gifted, determined and purposeful disadvantaged individuals, so that another human endowment is not lost or wasted.
