It is our utmost pleasure to announce that NaiHealth has been officially selected as one of the grant recepients of the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) in Nigeria. NaiHealth was selected among others out of about 216,000 applications accross 56 African countries.
NaiHealth was established in December 2018 as a partnership between Kikiope Oluwarore of MyAnimalMyHealth (MAMHE) and Funmi Omisope of Home and Street Kids Welfare Initiative (HSKi) to provide community-based micro-health insurance packages that would promote easier access to affordable health services, products and deliverables. The social enterprise was founded by both partners as a result of their mutual passion and joint activities working with disadvantaged communities in Nigeria. The Tony Elumelu grant will be utilized to fund the current phase of activities and deliverables that would ensure successful running of the social enterprise. These include completion of the NaiHealth software and deployment to existing and potential partner hospitals, promotion of NaiHealth packages in the first cohort of target communties and retail of relevant health products and deliverables. The Tony Elumelu Foundation will also provide mentorship, business and leadership training for NaiHealth.
