• Blessed to be a Blessing

About us

Friends of Adonai was born out of sheer compassion in 2003, helping solicit funding and volunteer services for the Adonai Orphanage then located in Ungwan-Romi, Kaduna state. An undergraduate met the proprietress of the Adonai Orphanage while producing her project which was a TV documentary. The orphanage was not in the best of state and she decided to join forces with the hard working Mrs Elizabeth Afuwape to provide a better living for the children in the home.

The CSR re-focused as the needs changed over time but she maintained contact and support for the Orphanage long after graduation even till date.

The Friends of Adonai organization began giving priority to scholarships to under-privileged children as the support base for the Orphanage increased and more recently it is concentrating on setting up SMEs to under-privileged mothers (especially widowed, divorced/separated).

The re-focused NGO, Friends of Adonai is relying on funds generated from the sale of her book “Scribbles & Doodles”, a percentage of sales from the Orchid Clothing line and the support & contributions of like minded people especially women to achieve its new vision.

It’s cardinal values are compassion, sisterhood, industry, accountability & transparency .

It’s tagline is “Blessed to be a Blessing“.

We hope to build a robust and dedicated chain of support through volunteered mentorship and supervision of beneficiaries.

We cannot reach the entire world but rather than do nothing about the problems we see, we will reach the world around us to the best of our ability, one woman at a time.
