About Astrid Toda

As a mother of three grown-up children and a diplomat's wife I've been travelling around the world professionally a lot.

In 1992 my experiences with the street children of Lagos, West African Nigeria's metropolis, prompted me to give up my socially safe life with the strong purpose to enable these and other West African children to feel the happiness of an untroubled childhood - such as I had the luck to experience.

I define myself as a philantropist ever since. Particularly as a woman I try to demonstrate the power of every single person to make a difference, as the following pages will show.
