What impacts?

The Eiffel project has benefited 1,135 young people since 2011, with 900 going on to pursue higher education. Boasting a 94% success rate, it has had students ranked among the finalists of the National Math Olympiads competition since 2013. Eiffel schools have also received the LabelFranceEducation seal, allowing them to join the international network of establishments accredited for the quality of their French-Portuguese bilingual curriculum.

Operating in four non-oil-producing provinces, the Eiffel project is the product of an agreement among the Angolan Ministry of Education, TotalEnergies E&P Angola, the Embassy of France in Angola and a French secular association Mission Laïque Française.
