Changing Lives

One at a Time

One at a Time


Lovatt Foundation .Org is a charitable, world-wide collective that was founded in May 2015 and serves as an umbrella for high value, grass-root level, long-term projects in the red zone of Northern Nigeria.

Founded in May 2015 it has grown from setting up one orphanage for 30 children (of troubled Borno) to what it is today. Current projects include ‘COB’ – Children of Borno, the RUMBU Program, Tree Planting and Borehole Repairs, to name just a few.


From Maiduguri, Northern Nigeria, we channel every donation to the project of your choice. If you make a general (no project specified) donation, it will be allocated to where the need is greatest. The Lovatt Foundation .Org works closely with those in great need while appreciating contributions from community volunteers, NGOs, trades people and individuals. Every penny goes a long way as the collective does not get paid, nobody draws a wage for the work. We love designing projects to meet the individual passions of our supporters (e.g. solar unit, beehive, surgery, enterprise, tree planting, online learning, community library, etc).


Volunteer: Share your talents, services and time on the ground or from afar.

We are registered with CAC in Nigeria as an NGO under the name of Lovatt Foundation for Children. The Ministry of Womens Affairs and Social Development recently recognized our innovative and successful work with the Children of Borno, and we are grateful for the recognition and official support they have issued to ensure the safeguarding of the children.
