Resolve is an organization offering companies and individuals the opportunity to execute good deeds, corporate social responsibility, sustainability and charity projects through its platform, without the hassle of creating an individual vehicle to execute these projects.
The Resolve platform was borne due to the lack of reliable channels available to individuals and organizations looking to put their monies, earnings or profit towards charitable causes.
We strongly believe that there is an urgent need to intervene in the various gaps especially in the health care and educational sectors in Nigeria. Resolve has observed, based on numerous surveys that people/donors need reassurance that their contributions are indeed going into genuine charitable causes and are being used for same.
Most donors worry about the legitimacy of the causes to which they are asked to contribute and this discourages some donors, which in turn puts those in dire need at a disadvantage.
Resolve counteracts this problem by ensuring that adequate checks are carried out on the problems and plights of people, followed by a careful selection of eligible donee prior to presenting them on it’s platform.
To provide a credible, fully functional engine for sustainable development, genuine charitable causes, corporate social responsibility and welfare projects.
The Resolve Foundation is poised to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. At every stage of our human development, ‘giving’ is innate within us. We aim to inspire hope and we are dedicated to enriching and transforming lives through impactful humanitarian programs.
Integrity, honesty and transparency as the hallmark of our unwavering standards. Through the power of creative collaboration, we transform lives through our humanitarian efforts. We maximize our impact with a high level of commitment to genuine charitable causes in the community.
The inspiration for The Resolve Foundation was borne out of the need to improve the lives of the less privileged through sustainable initiatives. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCA), 125 million people needed humanitarian assistance worldwide in 2016. This figure increases yearly despite various humanitarian efforts and charitable causes. At Resolve, we understand these problems and believe that respect for human rights, professionalism and the right coordination can improve our humanitarian efforts. This is why we have combined our years of experience in project management with our team of professional and experienced development facilitators to create a platform for you to impact the world.
- To create a platform for humanitarians to implement social development projects

At Resolve Foundation, we hold ourselves accountable to our stakeholders by adopting, rethinking and improving our processes, practices, and operating structures. Our stakeholders constitute our accountability community. Further to this principle, we believe that good governance – corporate governance, IT governance, financial governance, environmental governance, social governance, as well impact governance – is a primary form of accountability.
As a mission- and vision- based organization, we adopt formal structures that promote predictability of corporate behaviour and insist on the highest professional and ethical standards. We adopt resource management and mobilization policies that engender donor confidence and strengthen success-critical partnerships. This helps us remain responsive to the communities we serve and maximize our desired impact and outcomes.
We maximize impact by adopting strict eligibility procedures and processes that eliminate the risk of scarce donor resources falling into the wrongs hands or being deployed to the wrong purposes. Apart from structured questionnaires administered
and professionally vetted by way of background checks, impact area assessment, site visitations and inspections, as well as interviews. A combination of the above procedures de-risks our operations to comfortable levels and enable us focus on the
most important element of our work -monitoring and measurement of impact.
