About NSP

Our Mission

The Nigerian School Project, founded in 2004, is an educational organization dedicated to matching resources with the people and environments that need them most. By providing everything from textbooks to lab stools to the very foundations for fledgling schools in remote villages, The Nigerian School Project seeks to help communities develop successful schools they can be proud of. We believe that every child is entitled to an education, and that every parent, teacher and administrator deserves the tools to provide the best education they can. We believe that without a strong educational system, no country can maintain its prosperity and stability, and that the only way to resolve educational issues is by working with them in the very communities they affect.
