How You Can Help

If you wish to make your donation you may mail your cheque to the following contact name and address listed below:

The Foundation seeks to create the leaders of tomorrow and helps young Somalis achieve their educational dreams. In particular, the Foundation has worked very hard to increase the education and graduation rate for women in Somalia.

What is most remarkable is that the Foundation can help put a student through university for as little as £500 per year, and because 94% of all our income goes directly to funding scholarships, your donation can really change a life!

You can donate through a lump sum or via regular direct debits. Or if your company operates in Somaliland, you could offer internships or mentoring to our students to give them their first steps into the world of work or their chosen profession.
