A lot of people have a passion to do something meaningful for the poor and needy, the youth, widows and even unemployed people in the country. Some have made it a goal they must achieve while to others it remains a wish. Though Nigeria practices a Democratic system of government, we all cannot be in government, neither can we all be politicians in other to help build the society. Some have taking to establishing NGO in Nigeria as a mean of contributing to society development.

We shouldn’t leave all the responsibilities to government, even when it is within the power of some individuals or groups to mitigate some of these social problems and to save lives. This is the reason why many have started to realize the goal of bringing positive change to their society by setting up NGO in Nigeria today.

These are organizations that are independent of the government (though some are funded by the government) and are not particularly inclined to profit making.

SEE ALSO: How To Raise Funds For NGO And Other Non Profit Organizations

A Non-governmental Organization (NGO) is a voluntary group which is not under  the control of government and is not in business with the aim of making profit, but rather to meet some specific needs in the society. NGOs are mostly funded by the government of a country while in some cases, it could be funded by private individuals or groups, as well as foundations.

Some NGOs function locally while others function nationally and internationally, depending on the scope of their activities. Some examples of NGOs are the Red Cross Society, All Nigeria united nations students’ and youth association (ANUNSA), Breast cancer association of Nigeria (BRECAN) and many more.

So, if it is your desire to better the lives of a group of people in the society, alleviate poverty and set a standard for our future generations to follow, then I’ll advise that you consider running an NGO. You can learn all you need to know about NGOs and how to start in the following paragraphs.

Difference Between Non Governmental Organization (NGO) And Non Profit Organization (NPO)

A non-profit organization is any organization that is established for the purpose of achieving a goal in the society and is not profit oriented. This definition is broad and it includes an NGO. But the notable difference between NGOs and NPOs is that, an NGO is a legal entity, a non-governmental organization that is mostly funded by the government but excludes the government from its operations.

In the case of Non-profit organizations, extra funds from their various activities are used solely for the purpose of the organization, unlike NGOs where extra funds could go to shareholders and owners of the organization. NPOs could be charity organizations, service organizations or even NGOs.

How To Register An NGO In Nigeria

A non-governmental organization must be registered with the corporate affairs commission (CAC). According to provisions of the companies and allied matters act (CAMA) 1990, it may be registered as a company limited by guarantee or as incorporated trustee.

Note that a company limited by guarantee can only be registered with the authority of the Attorney general of the federation.

In registering an NGO as incorporated trustees,

The process starts with an availability check. This is a search for the business name to see if there is any other business entity currently registered by that name.

Once the business name is approved by the corporate affairs commission, it means you can proceed to the next phase which is the procurement of an application form containing the memorandum of guidance.

You must do a publication of notice of the incorporation on at least three national dailies, one of which must be a local paper which is usually circulated in the area where the NGO will be located.

The final stage is submission of the completed application (in three copies) to the corporate affairs commission.

Requirements For Registering An NGO In Nigeria

When submitting the completed application form at the corporate affairs commission, you must go with the following:

    • Application letter (formal)
    • 2 copies of applicant’s constitution
    • 2 copies of application form duly signed by the chairman and secretary of the board
    • Original newspaper publications
    • 2 passport photographs of applicants
    • Bank draft of N20, 000 in favour of CAC, payable in Abuja
    • Detailed minute of the meeting where the board of trustees were appointed with a list of attendance as well as absentees, along with votes and duly signed by the chairman and secretary of the board
  • Also minutes of the meeting where the special clause rule was adopted into the constitution of the organization signed by the secretary and chairman of the board

Pls only those who have same passion towards these course i have explained above. i am just inviting one or two persons cos only one person cannot carry out such a great plan alone…… i look forward to hearing from prospective hearts that are filled with such compassion

    Hey thanks for this great insight. I have a passion to bring beauty to marred lives. I am an orphan with young siblings to care for, I know what it means to provide their daily need plus educational need. This experience fuels a passion in me to reach out to orphans, widows and the vulnerable in the remote communities who go through a lot to meet their basic necessities of life. Hence, my desire to start an NGO that will offer skill acquisition programs for these people so as to empower them to become self sustainable to cater for themselves and their family. I also want to take beggars of the street and provide them a platform for self development. Please I need a mentor to guide me on how to go about this.

    First of all, I want to appreciate the thoughtfulness of the author of this post. This is one of the simplest yet pinpoint writeup on registration of NGO in Nigeria I have come across lately. Thumbs up!

    It is inspiring to see people dust their visions of the shelves and try to get a head starts. I will encourage you to keep the flag flying because the world is better because of the existence of organizations supporting humanity, like yours. Think Acumen, Red Cross, Feed Africa, Rockerfeller, Bill and Melinda Gates, Carpenter Foundation, etc.

    Starting, growing, and making lifetime impact with NGO is a thick process but not totally “uncookable”. A little mistake kills the life of the vision. This is the reason many up and coming NGOs have hit-the-rock-and-crashed. To succeed better in the industry, you need counsel and experience from an insider.

    If you are looking to start your own NGO on the right footing, and need advise, partners, considerate registration cost, NGO-kind documentation, concept refinement, funding (national and international), affiliations, networking with other NGOs and CSOs, consultancy, database, etc.

    I have over 20years industry expertise and I am in management position of many top NGOs in Nigeria with global networks. I have over 35 NGO mentee organizations I assisted in founding. I also have my own NGO. A lot more you want to know about me.

    Need to reach me? Call, SMS or WhatsApp 08062693114. Please, serious-minded persons only.

      We are UK Based created group supporting youth in Nigeria .
      We are helping serious youth with School fees, WAEC and NECO forms fees, WAEC and JAMB free tutorial, Help with small start-up business , School fees for University & Polytechnic students and weekly upkeep for Graduate seeking for job.

      Our Mission is to stop Vulnerable youth from using as a crime instrument, fraud, prostitution, sleeping around (girls) dancing naked in the club and getting unwanted pregnancy. We understand that the reason for all the above is lack of Government support or making provision for Graduate like weekly upkeep while they search for job, Library in the community where people continue to get busy and keep their skills up to date, helping family with weekly upkeep will stop the parents sending their children to the street in order to get food or money for survival.

      We do appreciate that this youths need skills to develop themselves, food, education and apprenticeships are most important part of their lives to keep them busy and take their eyes away from Bad influences. We are helping them already and we proud ourselves for the achievement so far

      If you are interested to join this group for or aware of someone who can benefit from the group please follow the link below

        Hi Gbemmy, God bless you and your team for showing great concern for the less privileged youth in Nigeria.

        My main area of concern is EDUCATION for the orphans but due to financial constraint I am yet to initiate the NGO.

        Please, may I introduce some of the real less privilege youths from my church / community to your organization for financial assistance in order to further their education to tertiary level?

        If this request is granted, please, send me the link you talked about, it is not showing below the information.

        My whatsAapp no: 08089237065

        Thanks and remain blessed.
        Pst JOHN

      all you need do is run a public search to know if the name you have in mind has already been taken by someone else, if it hasn’t then you do a name search after that get NGO published on two newspapers publications, get your trustees, get your trustee declaration forms, and the trustee form together with your constitution and your good to go.
