Bride City Foundation

Founded in 2006 by Dr. Magnus Onyeaku & Cristen Onyeaku, Bride City Foundation has developed from a CBO to a Multi-national NGO. Bride City Foundation was Incorporated as an NGO in 2018 as CAC/IT/No 119368, in Nigeria.

Our primary areas of operation include:

  • Child Protection
  • Gender Development
  • Youth Development
  • Capacity Building
  • Education
  • Food Security
  • Cooperative Development
  • Financial Inclusion
  • Climatic Change Management

The NGO works in partnership with its 5 Members' Cooperatives, technical companies and financial services companies. This helps it mobilize, validate and segment prospective beneficiaries ahead of every social and financial impact.

The Cooperatives are led by some Volunteer Networks whose primary task is data mobilization, validation and classification into Cooperative Units and Clusters. The NGO offers Skill Acquisition and other Capacity Building Modules for effective Segmentation and, financial partners come in with grants and/or loan facilities.


Membership is of 4 categories:

  1. CHARITY: For highly vulnerable and non-economic persons in need of food, shelter, clothing, education, healthcare, etc.
  2. BASIC: For economic passive persons in need of economic activation. Inexperienced starters who need Skill Acquisition and Seed Capital. These need training and Capacity Development.
  3. STANDARD: For economically active and experienced persons in need of Business Scale Support.
  4. ELITE: For Volunteer Leaders. Though they need help as Standard Members do, they have developed their leader skills to mobilize, validate, process and coordinate member data for various Coops of the NGO.

Bride City Foundation is a member of the association of Non-Governmental Organizations of Nigeria (ANGON). It is licensed for Microfinance and Financial Inclusion operations under the Association of Non-bank Microfinance Institutions of Nigeria (ANMFIN), through which it makes its monthly rendition to the Central Bank of Nigeria.
