Abaarso Network

About the organization

Abaarso School is a 7-12th grade boarding school developing the future leaders of Somaliland. Our students became the first in their country in over 30 years to matriculate to US universities, including Harvard, Yale, MIT, Brown, Columbia, Cornell and UPenn. Abaarso is an American-accredited school (NEASC) that has received funding support from USAID. Students benefit from a deep and expansive extracurricular environment driven by teachers who do advising, clubs, sports, project days, office hours, events, and administrative duties.

Barwaaqo is a residential university creating life-long careers for women in Somaliland. In a country where female unemployment is well over 90%, more than 95% of our bachelor’s degree graduates have successfully secured high-paying jobs within 3 months of graduation. Barwaaqo offers degrees in education and communications, filling a crucial gender gap.
