Tola Makinde (Founder)

A seasoned Banker, Entrepreneur and Child Care Giver of children with additional needs, Tola Makinde is passionate about helping and supporting kids living with challenges having experienced and been faced with the same challenge when her daughter was diagnosed with Down Syndrome in 2011.

The birth of her daughter Moyin changed her entire life as she turned her pain into passion. Tola believes, having accepted and intervening early for Moyin, that with the right help, aid and assistance Moyin can live a less challenged life and also believes the same for other challenged children

Tola engages in volunteer work. This entails home/ door to door visitation of families with kids living with Down’s Syndrome, helping and assisting the concerned families cope with the emotional trauma often experienced after a diagnosis, supporting and providing materials, therapy equipment that will aid developmental milestones. She strongly believes God has given her a mandate to impact the lives of kids with additional needs.

With the understanding that to help her daughter she needs to learn, sacrifice and be ready to adapt to new situations and conditions, Tola had to resign from her Banking career of 11 years to go into self-employment. This gave her time to rediscover herself and find her purpose. As she counsels, gives hope and encouragement to families she has found her place of joy and fulfilment

She has acquired back to back trainings from the United Kingdom and United States of America in reaching out to children born with additional needs and supporting them from birth onwards.

A strong advocate of early intervention, eagerly working towards changing lives of children with Down’s Syndrome in her community and nation.

In June 2016, she bagged a Life Turnaround Award at the 4th Wise Woman Awards in recognition of her contribution to creating Downs Syndrome Awareness
