We are very proud of our strong track record of bringing free, high quality and equitable education to girls and boys in rural Somalia. One way we tell this success story is through our Annual Report. It summarizes the work we’ve accomplished each year, highlights our path moving forward, outlines the financial status of the Foundation and introduces our Board of Directors. It confirms to our supporters that SHF is both ambitious in its plans and disciplined in its approach.
Hope is Shaping Our Future
All of the grads attended university in the Fall – seven young women and seven young men – some with the
support of scholarships from the Foundation. To help ensure that they have the tools to succeed, each
graduate was presented with the gift of a laptop. It’s a promise that we’ve made to each graduate of the
Somali Hope Academy – complete your studies and we’ll equip you with a laptop to help you take your next
steps. “It’s a dream come true”, one graduate said.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unpredictable and challenging environment for education providers around the world. It has further emphasized the need for education. Applying knowledge and learning will be key to regaining health and prosperity in our lives. As an organization we learned many lessons during the pandemic. The first one was to remain hopeful. We set an ambitious funding target this year and thanks to our partners and supporters we have exceeded it.
