Dr TITILAYO OYEBOLA

Dr TITILAYO OYEBOLA

Chairperson

Titilayo has been in the non-profit community for over 7yrs. She holds a BSc in Biochemistry, MSc in Pharmaceutical Technology, and Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics.
She currently works as a European Regional Supply Chain Manager in a large Bio-pharmaceutical company.

Titilayo’s passion and devotion to the non-profit sector began just after her BSc degree where she raised some funds to construct a deep well for a special needs school, engaged book publishers to donate free books to school (to mention a few) in a remote area of the southern part of Nigeria.

This experience enhanced her drive to continue to seek to support others including our special needs children/families, empower the less privileged/single parents via the non-profit organisation. Thus, joining The Father’s Joy board of trustees was quite an easy decision, as vision/missions clearly align with hers. Titilayo is married with four young adults all flourishing in their careers.
