$250 - $500Salary is a $250-500/month stipend.

Barwaaqo University, a women's teacher training college located in Somaliland, is looking to hire motivated teachers.

Barwaaqo University opened in the Fall of 2017 as a higher learning institution teaching young women to become educators in Somaliland. Barwaaqo is the second education institution supported by the Horn of Africa Education Development Fund, the first is the Abaarso School of Science & Technology, featured in the New York Times and BBC World, a non-profit boarding school educating the best and the brightest Somali students in the Horn of Africa. The schools are located outside of Hargeisa, Somaliland, a breakaway, self-governing region of Somalia. Barwaaqo University builds on Abaarso's success and the need for a quality local university.

Barwaaqo replicates and scales the Abaarso education system that focuses on core fundamentals and character education. The school encourages ethics and a strong sense of responsibility for improving the students' community. While only founded in 2009, Abaarso School has achieved success not seen in the area for several decades. After four graduating classes, Abaarso has placed over 160 Somali students on international scholarships including dozens in the United States. Abaarso School graduates are enrolled at top schools including Harvard, Yale, Brown, MIT, Georgetown, Amherst, Brandeis, and many more.

Barwaaqo University is looking for individuals interested in dedicating at least one year to teaching and building our community from the ground up. Teachers will help build a school culture that puts the growth of the school and the students first, while finding a way around the challenges inherent in working in the developing world. Between the classroom, preparation, student groups, office hours, and other projects, teachers should expect 50-70 hours of work each week. With successful performance, significant upward mobility is possible for staff members.

Barwaaqo is seeking a qualified teaching specialist who is also able to function as an English teacher, preferably with a history in professional teacher training and curriculum development. Teachers will be involved in the training of student teachers, including observation, and developing curriculum.

Located in Baliga Cas, a village approximately 20 kilometers north of the city of Hargeisa, Somaliland, Barwaaqo University provides an intensive boarding school academic environment for its students, while also contributing to and partnering with the local Baliga Cas community. In addition to their studies, students participate in primary tutoring, an afterschool program available for local village children to take lessons in core subjects using a Montessori approach.

We are currently accepting applications to start January 2020 and September 2020.

Barwaaqo University is a women's-only boarding institution and at this time is only seeking female applicants.
