About WBF Africa

Mothers and their children during a teaching programme on proper childcare organised by the WBFMothers and their children during a teaching programme on proper childcare organised by the WBFThe Wellbeing Foundation (WBF) was founded in 2003 by Mrs Toyin Saraki, formerly First Lady of Kwara State, Nigeria.

At the Foundation we believe that there is something outstanding in every man, woman and child, and everyone should be enabled to fulfil their potential. We have a vision to make this a reality by improving people's lives, encouraging them in distress, comforting them in sorrow and rejoicing with them in triumph over sickness, poverty and deprivation. These are the key issues which the Foundation was formed to confront.

But while it was born out of passion and empathy, WBF has since become one of the most powerful and effective voices in the movement for improved maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH), bringing together public and private sectors on both the national and international level. We are dedicated to the establishment and entrenchment of best practices MNCH, as well as the improvement of health systems in Nigeria and across Africa. We also work in the fields of human rights, social welfare, education, arts and culture, citizenship and democracy,

The Wellbeing Foundation believes that the developing world is rich in human resources. We have therefore set ourselves the task of ensuring that this human capital is not wasted by the lack of an infrastructural support base, so that all might realise their full potential
