CATALYSING LOCAL SOLUTIONS

FOR LOCAL PROBLEMS

The Nenita Sá Engineering Foundation (NSEF) was established in 2016 by Bissau Guinea-born Helder da Silva (BEng, PhD, MIET, IEEE) and it is promoted mainly by Bissau Guineans, with collaboration of partners worldwide.

We provide educational opportunities, business ideas, technical solutions and training skills that mainly empower African women and young people. And all the profits generated by our initiatives are re-invested to further improve and increase our services for community empowerment.

Quality education is at the heart of our project, and there is nothing more rewarding to us than developing future professional that can deliver tangible results to the African's community economy and society.

Committed to excellence and high impact, we support efforts to enhance education, and to organise and support the development of communities, up-skill local people and to help to improve the understanding of people going to business in the local communities.

We will help to develop a good educational environment and to inspire future generations of Africans.

Childhood story

in 2010, Dr. Helder da Silva noticed that his educational struggle was not something particular, but yes, something typical of a Mininu di Guiné (which translates as Child of Guinea-Bissau). Also that the problem of quality education goes well beyond his native country Guinea-Bissau and it his a significant problem in the Sub-Sharan Africa. Mainly due to poverty, majority of children in the continent go throgh the same experience in education.

The legacy he wants to leave is of a African education transformer, a philanthrophy and a contributor to the development of engineering education and application in the African continent.
