HELP EDUCATE THEM FOR TOMORROW
EVERY ORPHAN GIRL DESERVES AN OPPORTUNITY
The Queen Grace Foundation is a charity organization based in Lagos, Nigeria with a mission to work with local children, communities, supporters and partners to protect and transform vulnerable orphan girl children and female victims of violence in our society.
The charity was founded by Princess Genevieve Ikenchukwu in 2002 in London and was officially launched in Lagos, Nigeria in 2015. Since then, the organisation has received a number of support both locally and internationally for its causes and innovative programs. The QGF appreciates all its supporters and is open to developing future strong relationships with potential sponsors and partners and welcomes the application of volunteers willing to help drive the vision forward.
The QGF with the collaboration of the National Council of Arts and Culture in Abuja, Nigeria appreciates and works with talented young artists by promoting and selling their work online. Please support by visiting our shop to support to these great talents.
Finally, we hope you will join us on our journey in transforming the lives of the young orphan girls, because they deserve an opportunity to a better life too.
