About the EG Friends

About the EG Friends

Like a lot of small, independent non-profit organizations, Empowerment Gateway began as a volunteer-led labour of love. We’ve grown a lot since the original concept was born in 2004 in South Africa, and we’ve learned a lot since then.

We grew not only in community out-reach, but also with the number of causes we care about and continue to act upon. But with the growth of our areas of impact, our costs increased as well, to the point that the founders can no longer support the growth on their own.

Being a Friend of Empowerment Gateway gives you the opportunity to have a positive impact across our local communities, either directly or indirectly; it enables you to be part of a growing non-profit organization; it enables you to be a positive contributor to the causes you really care about.

The Friends membership program, along with proceeds from many of our events, sales from our charity store in Lagos, as well as contributions from other service’s helps us cover the costs associated with running our organisation and contribute significantly to reducing the costs of running many of our causes - administrative and operational expenses. Covering for example the costs of technology, membership management, marketing, advertising, printing, venue rentals, travelling, administration, legal and accounting, etc.
