Who We Are

Our Inspiration

Inspired by her parents' philanthropy, Clare Bisi Jagunna continues their legacy of compassion and support. Learn how you can be a part of this mission.

Clare Bisi Jagunna spearheads a non-governmental foundation with a mission to support women and children at various life stages, providing comprehensive assistance from pre-labor to post-labor. Her organization also extends support to families facing displacement due to insurgents, natural disasters, domestic violence, or economic challenges in their communities—a commitment upheld since 2016.

Drawing inspiration from her volunteer experiences in the children’s department of her church, Calgary seniors community, women’s shelter, and caring for pregnant teens and their babies, Clare pursued training in childcare and disability management. Additionally, she underwent training at the University of Lethbridge to establish her non-profit.

Clare’s passion for aiding the needy is rooted in her parents’ legacy, particularly her father’s philanthropy in Ekiti state and the Catholic community. This familial influence propels her to continue the legacy through her impactful initiatives.
