Hayat Foundation is a special intervention foundation that focuses on issues dealing with persons living with Cerebral Palsy and other Disabilities. The objective of the foundation is to bring succour, support, resolutions and improve the lives of persons, children and parents to children living with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
The Foundation was established in 2016 by Alhaji Yahya Bello, a successful businessman and Barr. Mrs. Amina Oyiza Bello.
In 2016A The Foundation became fully operational and has continued to make great success. Hundreds of parents of children with cerebral palsy and other disabilities responded. It was from this humble, grassroots beginning that Hayat Foundation was born as a national organization .
Several Hayat Foundation affiliates opened across the country, quickly establishing the organization. Right at its inception, Hayat Foundation brought issues about cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities to the forefront of the national media.
Hayat Foundation would not be where it is today a assisting thousands of people with disabilities and their families a if it had not been for a group of parents who were committed to pioneering an effort to change the world for their children.
Today, Hayat Foundation continues to work closely with its affiliates on issues that open doors for people with CP. From home ownership to health care reform, inclusive education to competitive employment, Hayat Foundation has established itself as a leader in the disability community and as a strong voice for individuals with disabilities and their families.
Alhaji Yahya Bello, my husband, is the co-founder of Hayat Foundation and has been a kind loving supporter of this establishment. He relentlessly gives his best of support. His strategic thinking helps us in creating a sense of direction in reaching out to the family of people living with Cerebral Palsy and creating a major awareness in sensitizing the people that there are special people amongst us that are not being paid attention to.
Giving hope to every child with CP by providing a place of respite, parental empowerment and empowering them with skills to bring out the ability in their disability.
