About Alaafia Kwara

Alaafia Kwara – A Wellbeing Foundation Africa Initiative established to promote and positively impact the health and wellbeing of women and children, families and communities in Kwara State.

The Alaafia Kwara Initiative was established by Her Excellency Toyin Ojora Saraki in 2004, First Lady of Kwara State 2003 – 2011, to highlight key solutions towards achieving progress in the key measurable indices set out by the 2015 millennium development goals.

Our interventions and initiatives continue to be guided by the targets of the 2030 sustainable development goals.

Our Mission

Alaafia Kwara adheres to the principle that within each community lies the intelligence and capacity to ensure the development of that community, our work is not to bestow largesse but to bring out the qualities and aid the development of each member of that community through well targeted and impactful programs.

Our work is carried out through a unique congregation of women’s groups, professional and vocational associations, community associations and cooperatives, of which we have over 1300 groups registered under the Alaafia Kwara Platform for Effective Action, an unprecedented women and youths consultative forum that is represented in every nook and cranny of the state, such that no suffering should go unnoticed.
