Our Purpose

WBFA'S Purpose

Nigeria’s progress determines Africa’s deliverables, and Africa’s deliverables define global success.  By the expiry date of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in 2030, I am certain that the magnitude of Nigeria’s success will be felt around the world.” – Her Excellency Mrs Toyin Ojora Saraki

Through a multi-layered strategy of research, advocacy, policy development, community engagement, philanthropy and education, Wellbeing for Women 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:

  • Further education for midwives and frontline community health workers;
  • Improved education around water, sanitation and health (WASH) for life-saving healthy habits;
  • Advancement of early childhood mental and physical health development, and;
  • The fundamental necessity of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls for a fair and just society.

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.
