NSEF LEADERSHIP, GOVERNANCE AND ADVISERS
The work of the Foundation is lead and strategically supported by a distinguished group of people acting as leaders, Trustees, Directors, advisers and collaborators. Apart from the majority of the people in the group being Bissau-Guinea-born and having a good understanding of the current facts, they all share the same commitment to the future prosperity of Guinea-Bissau communities.
The Foundation's leaders derived from both academic and industrial backgrounds. Each member has his own area of expertise to help the NSEF project to succeed in both the organisation's day-to-day and long-term life.
The Foundation Management Committee is headed by Helder da Silva, Elisabete Furtado and Moacir Barbosa:
The primary decision-making bodies of the NSEF are the Board of Trustees and the Management Committee.
Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees defines strategic objectives mainly on the basis of the orientations decided by the Management Committee and coordinates their implementation and adaptation to changes affecting the implementation of the NSEF's Programmes.
The main objectives of the Management Committee is to increase the quality of our services, to make NSEF accessible to more people and to defend its social interest. Its missions are to adopt the strategies from the Board of Trustess, monitor the implementation of those strategies, and protect NSEF's assets. As a company limited by guarantee, our Directors are responsible for the overall control and implementation of strategic direction of the project.
