The Good Cause: 8 NGOs Making A Difference In Nigeria

You do not choose the family you are born into neither do you select the country you’re born in, but you can decide to make a difference with the life you’ve been given.

Our humanity is not defined by how much wealth we amass but the few we were able to lift with what we have. We become one people by the kindness and generosity we extend to one another.

That is why we celebrate philanthropists, givers and foundations whose existence is to cater to the needs of those who are indisposed or displaced.
