Meet the Founder
Aisha Ummi Bello – Tukur is the Founder & Chief Believing Officer of Orbus Global Solutions. She is a Social Entrepreneur and Life Coach whose mission it is to find sustainable solutions to the societal challenges we face in Africa. She has a background in Business Strategy, Fundraising, Project Coordination, Human Resources and Social Development. She sits on the board of several organisations.
As a child growing up, I had always wanted to be a medical doctor, if I recall, as far back as primary school. At the end of the school term, when my results came out and I did exceptionally well, my dad would then take me to the supermarket to get a gift and the first thing I would pick would be a doctor set. I wanted to change the world and have always felt the need to help people in any way I can. Unfortunately, I grew up, and didn’t end up becoming a medical doctor but I searched for different ways to help and make a difference in people’s lives.
Aisha is tenacious, selfless and highly-dedicated to making the world a better place. She has been instrumental in various philanthropic causes such as the drilling of water wells and bore holes, as well as the building of mosques in cities across Nigeria. Her experience on the field has given the organisation real life and eye-opening views on what it is like for children to not have clean water, toilets and basic hygiene practices.
She has led Orbus Global Solutions to successfully implement World Water Day Initiatives in over 30 locations across Nigeria, Orbus’s Malaria Day Projects which include “Project Check Up” testing, and the provision of long-lasting mosquito nets and malaria medications, initiatives to assist the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the North East of Nigeria. These are in the form of Educational Initiatives (Project LEAD, theOrbus School Drive and the Orbus Nutrition Drive) for Internally Displaced Persons. The organisation won the Award for Most Prolific Organisation (2014-2015) in recognition of its contributions to the development of the community by The Nigerian Students Union, Islamic University of Al Madinah Al Munawarah.
She was recently awarded The Coaching Icon Awards (2019) for making an impact and contributing to the coaching industry in Nigeria by the Olusola Lanre Coaching Academy (OLCA).
