Happy new month good people of Nigeria and welcome to our Rebrand Nigeria Ambassadors Series for today!
On today’s edition, we shall be showcasing Adeloye Olanrewaju- Founder of Safermom & Babymigo and a graduate of Human physiology from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology
Safermom was developed as a mobile service for pregnant and nursing mothers of 0-3-year old babies, to access health information and make informed health decisions. This is achieved through voice calls, mobile SMS, helplines, and a mobile app. It also helps mothers track milestones in pregnancy and nursing, including vaccination dates, and shares prevention tips, and home remedies. Mothers can also dial a short code to access vital health information, government schemes, and important announcements in their local languages, and request tricycles or ambulances.
This invention was inspired by an effort to support mothers and babies in getting the psychological, social, and mental support they needed.
Adeloye’s innovation earned him numerous awards which include;
An award from Her Majesty, the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace for his works in improving mother and child health in Sub-Sahara Africa.
Listed among the top 6 startups in Africa, winning $50,000 USD in the Impact category of Facebook’s Internet.org competition.
He is a St Gallen Leader of Tomorrow. TEEP fellow, International Action Youth Net fellow, and Leap Africa Social Innovator fellow, among several others.
In 2017, Adeloye went further to launch Babymigo, a community for the new generation of young parents to find trusted information in local African contexts, get their questions answered, and connect with nearby moms and experts.
We are proud of Adeloye’s achievements and we are honoured to celebrate him as a Rebrand Nigeria ambassador.
This campaign is powered by the Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa.
God bless Nigeria!!
