About Us

The WellBeing Foundation was founded in 2003, out of the abundance of compassion and uncommon ability for effective action, which her Founder and President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki has for the development of people and communities at large.

The WellBeing Foundation President, Her Excellency, Mrs. Saraki, Kwara State First Lady, has long served as one of the Initiators/Trustees of the Lagos based "Lifestream Charity", established for the provision of medical treatment of Nigerian children suffering from life threatening diseases and other conditions, particularly heart disease. Through this personal, long-standing philanthropic and volunteer experience, Mrs Saraki could not simply fold her arms and ignore the yearnings of the populace for assistance towards self reliance.

Arriving Kwara State as First Lady in 2003, Mrs. Saraki immediately embarked on an 'Assessing the Needs' tour of the state, an extensive consultative experience that gave birth to the Kwara Wellbeing Trust, KWT, Alaafia Kwara, (as it is fondly called) catering to the specific needs of the good people of Kwara state; providing a wide-range support and opportunities to all, and complementing the duties of the Office of the wife of the Governor, Kwara State.

With ongoing community interaction in Kwara State, it became clear that a coherent non governmental strategy was needed for Nigeria not only to provide necessary impetus to the efforts of individual to generate thier own prosperity, but also to provide a framework for collaborative efforts between NGO's, hence, the emergence of The WellBeing Foundation.

The WellBeing Foundation believes that Nigeria 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... that all might realise their full potential!

The Office of the Wife of The Governor, Kwara State, continues to fulfil its pastoral and motherly role, discharging traditional derivative duties with dignity and empathy, separate and distinct from The WellBeing Foundation and its sister bodies.
