Due to recent renovation efforts to the headquarters, STRIKFORNATO had to repurpose office spaces into conference rooms. This resulted in an excess of 30 spare desks in good working condition providing STRIKFORNATO the unique opportunity to offer them and to support Portuguese public schools.
The Parents Association of Sesimbra's Schools were eagerly ready to receive these desks and to refurnish classrooms and offices in the two schools. The City Council of Sesimbra provided additional support with the transportation of the material and STRIKFORNATO provided the expertise on the assembly of the desks.
First established in 1953, as a part of the NATO Command Structure Reform, STRIKFORNATO relocated its Headquarters from Naples, Italy to Oeiras, Portugal in Summer 2012.
