RGF... Raising Africa’s Change Makers Through Mentoring and Entrepreneurship

Richard George Foundation (RGF) is a registered private non-governmental and non-profit organisation (CAC Registration No. 179866) with headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria and an office in London, United Kingdom.
Our vision is to Raise Africa’s Change Makers – with focus on young and talented African graduates from polytechnics and universities first in Nigeria and indeed Africa.
Our objective is to provide Social, Educational and Economic Empowerment to such high-flying students through mentoring guidance and pastoral support.

At Richard George Foundation, everything we do is to support our commitment: 

Raising Africa’s Change Makers Through Mentoring and Entrepreneurship

Our 7 core principles guide everything we do. They apply to every mentee and mentor including strategic and development partners of the foundation. 
RGF’s ethical values and vision 
RGF aims to conduct its business with honesty and integrity and expects employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) to maintain the highest ethical standards. RGFrecognises the obligations it has towards the entire community

RGF seeks to fulfil those obligations according to the original principles laid out in the Nolan Report on standards of behaviour in public life. These principles are set out below and represent our core values:

1.1 Selflessness – Employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) of RGF should take decisions solely in terms of the public interest. They should not do so to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family, or their friends. 

1.2 Integrity –  Employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) of RGF should not place themselves under any financial or other obligation to outside individuals or organisations that might influence them in the performance of their official duties. 

1.3 Objectivity – In carrying out public business, including making public appointments, awarding contracts, or recommending individuals for rewards and benefits, employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) of RGF should make choices on merit. 

1.4 Accountability Employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) of RGF are ultimately accountable for their decisions and actions to the public and must submit themselves to whatever scrutiny is appropriate to their office. 

1.5 Openness Employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) of RGF should be as open as possible about all the decisions and actions that they take. They should give reasons for their decisions and restrict information only when the wider public interest clearly demands. 

1.6 Honesty – Employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) of RGF have a duty to declare any private interests relating to their public duties and to take steps to resolve any conflicts arising in a way that protects the public interest. Any conflict must be notified in writing to RGF and updated as appropriate. 

1.7 Leadership – Employees, volunteers, mentees, mentors, stakeholders (partners and sponsorship organisations) of RGF should promote and support these principles by leadership and example. 
At RGF our goal is to work collaboratively with our various stakeholders to help some of Africa’s young and talented graduates fulfil their career aspirations including start-up aspirations and entrepreneurships.

Our Strategic Pillars


At RGF, we seek to deliver enhanced education with an emphasis on developing a collaborative and cooperative environment that is responsive to the needs of young people and the circumstances in which they live, in order to appropriately equip them for involvement in social and economic life.

Skills Aquisition & Development

RGF aims to connect mentees' training with work placements, internships, and employment opportunities to enhance their skills, competencies, and capabilities. This approach benefits local businesses, communities, and creates new employees, securing a talent pipeline.


RGF aims to leverage our global network of partners to provide young graduate entrepreneurs with an integrated package of financial and non- financial support to assist them in becoming business leaders and in starting and growing sustainable businesses that can scale and provide a return on investment.
