One of the hallmarks of truly successful people is their desire to lift others up. It’s this desire to alleviate poverty and give other people the gift of a good life that propelled Astrax Auto Boss ,Tayo Onilogbo to establish The Tayo Onilogbo Foundation, a foundation focused on giving back to society by catering to the needs of widows, pregnant women, orphans and less privileged students in the Ijebu axis of Ogun state.

Asked why The Tayo Onilogbo Foundation has constrained its activities to the Ijebu axis of Ogun state, the visioner- Astrax Auto Boss ,Tayo Onilogbo explained that he is convinced that charity must begin at home. As a son of the soil, his success must affect his immediate community directly. He also expressed concern at the proliferation of NGOs domiciled in major urban cities like Lagos and Abuja, sounding a reminder to conveners and visioners of such movements that help is needed in their towns and villages of origin as well.
