Education

Somali Community Concern (SCC) is a Somali National civil society organization which has been an endeavor to operate in Somalia for the 28 years of civil unrest and supported vulnerable IDP communities who have settled or squatted in government premises, factories, Afgoye corridor, and other suburbs of the capital city. SCC has dedicated much of its effort in being part of the humanitarian aid organizations that have done intervention largely in the different sectors of humanitarian assistance in the country including education, WASH, Protection, and Food security for a better improvement of the lives of many vulnerable Somali citizens. As the security situations and political upheavals are escalating day after day in a way which many of the Somalis do not satisfy, we know that so large numbers of families sought refuge outskirt of the capital city and have settled over there. 

The main target of SCC is to provide free of charge education that has been feathered with a high-quality syllabus which embraces as well interprets the natural interest to the children from IDPs and establishes WASH-friendly schools for the good hygienic environment in Mogadishu IDP settlements. WASH-friendly schools are growing movement throughout the world, with UNICEF being one of the pioneer promoters. WASH-friendly schools are being created more rapidly and with great commitment from the health and education sectors. This is in recognition that schools should be models for the community, and school children can be powerful motors of change and adoption of new behaviors.

Most of the SCZ communities live in a nomadic culture and subsistence farming. Unfortunately, there were successive conflicts and drought in the past seasons in the country and the consequence of the drought created new IDPs pouring into neighboring towns, especially in the suburb of the Banadir region, along Afgoye road. These new IDPs made the situation worse to the former IDPs which were living in an alarming condition. SCC carefully follows up on the situation and disseminating reports to the international institutions.

So far SCC implemented 9 Education in Emergency projects from July 2010 with UNICEF, SHF, Human Relief Foundation (HRF), and Education Cannot Wait (ECW) responding EiE gaps in IDP settlements of Banadir, Lower and Middle Shabelle regions. The total target number of beneficiaries benefitted during this decade is 69,670 consisting of (13,930 boys, 10,447 girls, 20,901 men, and 24,385 women).
