Every Woman Every Child

EWECWBF Founder HE Mrs Toyin Saraki flanked by Stephen Sobhani United Nations Foundation, Thelma Ekiyor Danjuma Foundation and Tomy Elumelu Founder Elumelu Foundation at the WBF EWEC LaunchThe Wellbeing Foundation has partnered with The Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) and the UN to meet the core objectives of the Every Woman, Every Child Africa effort. Our focuses are on
  • Traditional grant making and resource mobilisation through philanthropic and corporate social responsibility resourcing
  • New impact investments that encourage new models for business engagement in women's and children's health.

By leading private sector engagement with the EWEC Africa Task Force we hope to generate new commitments from businesses to fund grant making (led by WBF) and corporate impact investment (led by TEF). The EWEC partnership empowers communities, enabling them to find sustainable solutions for the problems facing maternal and child health in Africa.
