Nigeria’s progress determines Africa’s deliverables, and Africa’s deliverables define global success.

Through a multi-layered strategy of research, advocacy, policy development, community engagement, philanthropy and education, Wellbeing Foundation Africa devises and implements programs which boldly deliver upon the stated objectives of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Three, Five, and Six: Good Health and Wellbeing, Gender Equality, and Clean Water and Sanitation, respectively. All Wellbeing programs address multiple intersections between these three goals, including, but not limited to:
The need for such global goals are made particularly poignant in the context of Nigeria - a country with health challenges so pronounced, it is among the most-afflicted in the world.
Nigeria’s combination of large population and tremendous potential ensures that success – even moderate success — directly impacts the global numbers on health, wellbeing and progress, pivoting the global paradigm, from counteracting regressive standards to the more positive acceleration of progress.
As such, the Wellbeing Group delivers Nigerian priorities to the global stage to symbiotically advocate on a local level for the global priorities. Prosperous continuums of care and counsel are self-sustaining: healthy mothers make for healthy babies, which has a ripple effect on health of the nuclear family to the community at large, and ultimately transforms the health of nations, continents, and the world.
The prioritisation of global impact, in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), informs the following three objectives of the Wellbeing Group towards measurable and meaningful outcomes.
