SELECTION PROCESS

FACEZ aims to take the children as far as their academic performance will allow starting from their primary education which is a basic child right.

Our selection criteria focuses mainly on the need of a child. We conduct one on one interviews with the child and with their guardians to assess the level of need taking into consideration number of dependants under one roof, existence of parents or foster parents, supportiveness of extended family, health and employment status of parents or guardian, health status of the child and family members, past payment records at the school and past attendance and academic performance record of the child among other factors.

We verify our selections with various departments which take care of the welfare of children in each of our areas of operation including the District Education Office, District Admisitrator’s Office, the Local Board committees and Social Services department. This is done in an effort to identify the most deserving children, avoid duplication of beneficiaries in several different aid organisations and for accountability purposes.
