About Us

Emike Richard Lamai Foundation (CAC/IT/No. 89299) was established over a decade ago and incorporated in August 2016 to promote development. We are endowed by the family of Chief Richard Lamai, our lifetime benefactor.

Emike Foundation is a private independent Nigerian philanthropic organisation committed to improving the quality of life of Nigerians, by supporting health, education and youth empowerment interventions implemented directly, or through other social enterprises or NGOs registered and working in Nigeria.

Our top management consists of the Executive Committee (Board of Trustees and Directors), and the Secretariat under the leadership of an appointed Executive Director who oversees the daily affairs of the Organisation. We currently have Offices in the FCT, Lagos, Ogun, Bayelsa, Rivers, Imo and Edo States from where our staff, programme officers and consultants work with hundreds of people and businesses within our operational scope.

Our operational principles reflect our values and provide a frame of reference to help balance conflicting motivations and priorities when making decisions. Consequently, we have been able to manage and retain our diverse stakeholders in spite of the sensitivity of our activities as a grassroot empowerment and development Organisation.
