Quaterly Report

Hope for Somalia project has doubled its effort by increasing the number of the students whom have been helped through Hope for Somalia Project. East African Community Services (EACS) is now running its first local community school in remote village in Central Somalia. The village is called Laanmadow. Fortunately, UNICE had built a four class elementary school in the village. Majority of the villagers are semi-nomadic people, and they don't have the ability to administer the school or hire teachers to teach children. EACS, with the help of your donation and support has been able to hire two teachers to be teachers of the school. During the opening ceremony of the school, 65 students have registered and started getting their first formal education. Today, the number of students has increased to 113 and demand for more teachers and more school supplies are needed. EACS has been active with the local community and business community in the major cities of central Somalia to support school operation and give education opportunity for those children whom their parents are not capable to educate the young and future generation of Somalia. Hope for Somalia project is crucial for the 113 students who are enrolled into the Laandmadow elementry school to continue going to a new life and future to be educated and become self-sufficient.
