Npili means "women" in the Bissau-Guinean dialect, Papel
The Npili School Project consists of the development of a reference all-girls school with boarding facilities offering education from preschool to secondary school. It will provide girls from Guinea-Bissau with a high quality education, a fundamental tool to empower them to reach their full potential.
The School will not only provide disadvantaged girls the access to quality education, but also aims to have a demonstrative effect to the decision makers and civil society. It raises awareness about the importance of the role of an educated girl (woman) in society and the creation of a strong middle class that will support the country and move it towards a more inclusive and sustainable development.
