Founded in 2018, The Obaro-Best Foundation seeks to decrease the social-economic inequalities in Nigeria through community engagement. Inspired by the communities in which Mr. Isaiah Obaro-Best and his wife, Mrs. Sarah Obaro-Best, were born and raised, his six children set out to give back to their home country. After being brought up in an underserved community in the United States, they realized the importance of community engagement and made it a mission to honor their parent’s hard work and support through this foundation.
