Sule Adeola Ebunoluwa is a graduate of Architecture from Covenant University and also holds a Master degree in Construction management from Coventry University in the United Kingdom. She has always been interested in volunteering for a cause and she finally got the opportunity during her master degree in 2013 when she volunteered for FWT a Centre for women which focuses on the well-being of Black Minority Groups (BMG) at Coventry. She served as an Assistant Coordinator for the monthly event targeted at the well-being of the BMG women in the community, which she did for a whole year. She later volunteered for Save the Children as a coordinator for two different events that involved raising funds and celebrating one of the pioneer volunteer at 100 years.
Towards the later part of her stay in UK, she felt an urge to bring this experience back to Nigeria to contribute to her society. She began to make observations on how to go about it, she started asking questions on where the care of our community is at the moment. She concluded and came up with the idea to set up a platform to create awareness for this care and how to maintain healthy lifestyle at old age. This thought and concern for the growth of the community and the well-being of the elderly in our society birthed the vision of Oldster Foundation.
