Somali Girls Orphanage Update

๐Ÿงถ Somali girls’ orphanage update ๐Ÿงถ
We recently received an exciting update from our partner project, the SheCan Makeover, Makeup and Sewing Academy in Mogadishu, Somalia. They train orphan girls in the sewing trade. This equips them to take up a job as a seamstress when they leave the orphanage and be more economically independent. As you will know from our posts about the Oxford Community Action Football cups, we have been supporting this project for over a year now. Ask Hassan for personal stories from his visits to the orphanage.
Bahja Ali Warsame, the project leader (she’s the one holding the microphone in the pic below), has been filling us in on the progress of the first cohort. The twenty girls are two months into their three month program. They are incredibly diligent, appreciative, and looking forward to the opportunities the program affords them.
Thank you, Bahja and team for all your amazing work to improve the girls’ future. And thank you for everyone who has supported this project so far by participating in our football tournaments.
More updates soon!
