Warjirow Community Education (WCE)
After 24 years around the sun, I finally made my way back to the motherland, Mogadishu, Somalia in late 2019.
I have been privileged to have had access to education in various forms throughout my life, but I know how difficult this is where my parents grew up - on the outskirts of Mogadishu. My mum was sent to live with her older sister in the city, so that she could be the first in her family to be able to attend school. With that said, she has instilled in us the importance of gaining knowledge but also to give back - and me and my siblings are a testament to what a good education can do for future prospects.
We all know the importance of an education and I was so happy to bring my cousins an abundance of school supplies when I visited last year. The joy was radiating from them when they went to school and I want to ensure that many more children in Warjirow would be able to have access to a quality education.
My parents alongside those who grew up in this area have been supporting the elementary and middle school in Warjirow since it had been built a few years ago. We would love to continue to support the education centre so that we can build a better future for the younger generation.
“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
Please help with whatever you can! All funds raised will be going directly to Warjirow Community Education.
