Merry-Gold Water Charity is a non-profit, duly registered charity in Nigeria with the CAC (Corporate Affairs Commission), and with the United Kingdom’s Charity Commission (UK. Registered Charity Number: 1203569). The idea of a charity to address the perennial water inequity in Nigeria was strengthened after several visits to Lagos by our founder and principal trustee – Prince Akeem Adenuga. He observed, first hand, the dire and untold difficulties being experienced daily by locals in their desperate search for water. This sad state of affairs which is a direct consequence of inadequate, inefficient, and ineffective public water supply is what we are intent on bridging via the provision of safe water to households in some of the most affected communities in Lagos and, eventually, beyond Lagos State. Our primary mission is to alleviate the water needs in the rural and vulnerable communities in Lagos State, particularly in Odo-Ayandelu/Agbowa-Ikosi/Epe/Ikorodu Local Government Areas, among others. We intend to achieve this by providing modern water borehole systems with adequate reservoirs for them.
To achieve our purpose, we work with integrity, transparency, and accountability. We will focus our efforts on those communities without access to clean water, and work with carefully selected local partner organizations and individuals to provide clean water through low-cost boreholes that we will construct. For our projects, we will count on the goodwill of individual donations, grants, corporate sponsorships, and in-kind donations. We will monitor, maintain, and evaluate our project facilities to ensure sustainability of the projects. We will empower local leaders, deploy strong operations and maintenance units which will gather data on specific measurable indicators. Merry-Gold Water Charity is dedicated to empowering communities. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more about us and lend your support.
Merry Gold has a head office in Nigeria at 178 Borno Way, Ebute Meta, Lagos, and a London Office at 79 Devonshire Hill Lane London N17 7NE. We have the valid permits, licensing, insurance coverage, trademarks, and patents for the Charity.
We have a Board of Trustees in Nigeria, and a Board of Trustees in the UK.
