Who We Are
Founded in 2004 by Her Excellence Mrs Toyin Ojora Saraki, The Wellbeing Foundation Africa was created with the aim of improving health outcomes for women, infants and children. At the WBFA, we combine our programmes with advocacy work in Nigeria and around the world allowing every health worker and mother to have access to life altering advice. Over 200,000 women have taken part in our flagship ‘MamaCare’ classes in Nigeria and over 10,000 students have benefited from our Ado.PSHE classes. Despite dire national maternal mortality rates, we have not yet lost a single MamaCare mother, and our Ado. PSHE girls and boys are more empowered as every to make a change. Our WBFA midwives - for whom no topic is off limits - transform the lives of mothers, their children and communities.
