Build TB Centers

In our efforts to eradicate and/or reduce diseases in Somalia, the Foundation need established  and operates   tuberculosis treatment centers in the country.

They include the TB Centers of Godinlabe and Bahdo districts of the Galgaduud region in Somalia.


The environment underpins and defines all aspects of humanity. Environmental degradation most strongly impacts vulnerable communities, primarily because these places lack the coping mechanisms that normally protect lives and livelihoods. In Somalia, environmental degradation and shrinking natural resources can be the underpinning cause of conflict. Foundation  works to improve natural resource management in order to foster peace and development in Somalia.

Food and Nutrition

When war and crises occur household production of food can stop, trade routes can be disrupted and limited incomes can prevent families from accessing food.  the Foundation  supports families to access food through supporting production, providing jobs, encouraging traders and – as a last resort – distributing food. This holistic approach both ensures families don’t go hungry while also looking out for their health needs and long-term economic prospects.


Life can change for millions of families in just an instant: natural disasters can take loved ones and the outbreak of conflict drives families from their homes. When the unthinkable happens, Foundation delivers rapid, lifesaving aid to hard-hit communities in Somalia.

Economic Development

The school produces items such as mats, baskets; garments etc. about ten women teachers taught vulnerable women different subject’s such s weaving, sewing and other necessary skills suitable to females. The school is a place were real skills transfer takes place to women so that they can able to cover some of their basic needs at household level.

Peaceful Change

Somalia has been ridden with conflict for decades.

foundation supports a wide range of influential leaders in Somali communities to come together to resolve conflict and support community projects that address the root causes of conflict. Productive dialogue and sustainable development can lead to mutually beneficial solutions for change.

Government should support families and communities to grow and prosper in peace. foundation helps facilitate collaboration between government officials, local leaders and the people they serve, leading to more accountable and productive leadership and governance throughout the country.

Citizen Involvement

Societies are more peaceful and prosperous when citizens are actively involved in decision-making. foundation  supports communities in Somalia to advocate for their needs and engage productively with their government and increase accountability and participation.


Education is the foundation of progress, but it is interrupted by extreme poverty, conflict and other crises in Somalia. As a result, individuals and their communities often can’t reach their full potential. the foundation works with local governments to bring access to education to girls and boys.  Foundation  Deegaan has succeeded to build two  schools primary and secondary schools in Galgaduud. Foundation Deegaan cooperates with its partners in the building of schools, educational & cultural centers and support educational institutions in the various provinces in somalia

Water and Sanitation

Water is essential for life, good health and economic development. Yet, throughout Somalia, thousands of households lack access to clean water.

Foundation established  Two wells for safe water in Somalia by constructing water supply systems, rehabilitating water sources and installing drill  water well.

Children and Youth

Youth have a bigger stake in the future than anyone else and the energy and motivation to work towards a better Somalia. the foundation  works with communities in Somalia to nurture children through innovative education and health programs and supports youth to access educational opportunities and jobs.

The main goal of this project is to provide build and improve local capacities with regard to best practices and technologies in greenhouse farming

To diversify and enrich domestic food baskets and incomes through agricultural production and marketing

To establish and strengthen institutions that will support and sustain research and resources for agribusiness development


The direct beneficiaries of this project are:

30 farmers with greater women representation all drawn from Amaara  area of Somalia. The identified farmers will come from different villages in Himan iyo Heeb region where Amaaro Farmers Training Centre (AFTC) is situated and would be heads of families without reliable sources of routine income. They will receive life skills training in innovative agribusiness management which will entail greenhouse farming, processing and marketing of both fresh and processed farm products.

The AFTC as a host of this project will be empowered and better placed to train farmers and other institutions in greenhouse technology.


Offering small, affordable loans to people not served by traditional banks has been called ‘a weapon against poverty and hunger’ by the United Nations.

Foundation supports small-scale microfinance for people in Somalia that helps them to build and expand small-scale businesses and engage women youth in productive activities.

Energy  is Livelihoods Project

The overall objective of  Project (SELP)

is to contribute to overall poverty reduction in selected districts of somalia.

Specifically, the Project aims at increasing access to sustainable and reliable energy services by the rural populations in somalia.

SELP is based on joint need assessments which revealed that more than 95% of Somalia’s poor population has no access to electricity and that 80% of the total energy consumption in Somalia is derived from biomass fuels. The report highlighted the need for increased access to energy and its role as a catalyst for development.

The SELP activities have been designed with key stakeholders and target groups to address the increasing need for sustainable and affordable energy sources. The Project plans to strengthen livelihood strategies of Somali people in somalia through promoting use of alternative energy options to meet growing energy needs.

As a result of installation of energy equipment, increased access to clean water, health and education services will also be achieved. This will be done by creating awareness on the effects of bad natural resource management and promoting the use of renewable energy options such as wind, solar and modern biomass. Promotion of productive use of alternative energy options in meeting communities’ needs will be encouraged.

Capacity of local structures will be enhanced to install, manage and support alternative energy options. The Project further hopes to stimulate private investment by creating a supply-demand driven market around local entrepreneurs, private investors, diaspora and public consumer’s alternative energy technologies. The project will seek to address small scale initiatives and strengthen the energy sector management and governance through involvement of state and non state actors particularly women groups who are vocal in environment management initiatives. The Project is aimed at achieving the following results:

1. Increased awareness of alternative energy options

2. Increased utilisation of alternative energy options

3. Strengthened capacity of local institutions to install, manage and promote sustainable use of alternative energy options

4. Established commercialization and marketing and dissemination strategy of alternative energy options in rural areas.


Seasonal (Ramadan & Eid) Celebrations are annual events to reaching out to vulnerable populations of Somalia. The holly months of Ramadan and the two Eids, al-Fitr and Id al-Adha, are good opportunities for the orphans and the poor children and families as well as the fortunate populations who generously donate, as a religious duty, to the less fortunate and the poor during these holy months.
