About Ruth Titilayo Foundation
The Ruth Titilayo Foundation was established to ensure equal access to education for all children, regardless of their background. The Foundation champions education as a fundamental human right, striving to provide every child with the opportunity to realize their full potential. Ultimately, the foundation aspires to create a world where its services are no longer required, thanks to widespread access to quality education.
The foundation is named in honor of Ruth Titilayo (Iya Taiwo), born in 1955, and an alumna of Abeokuta Girls Grammar School. She continued her education at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria, where her dedication to helping the underprivileged took root. The Ruth Titilayo Educational Foundation was established on the 20th anniversary of her passing, preserving her legacy.
