These young women have grown up first at the orphanage then at Fairfield Children's Home when it was completed. Their dedication to their studies, the guidance of the Homes and their mothers, and generosity of FOSA's donors has turned the dream, that one day one day one of Fairfield's children would have the opportunity to attend college, into a reality.
It is FOSA’s commitment to the children of Fairfield, to prepare them to be independent productive adults. Post-secondary education is crucial to accomplish this goal which is the focus of this project. We want to say a very sincere Thank you both from FOSA and from our college students for your kindness. For those of you that may just be learning about this project we are reaching out to you, as we have ongoing needs for funds so our current student will be able to complete their studies and new students we have coming will be able to look forward to a Brighter Future.
