About Us

A group of committed gender balanced community development professionals in Somaliland came together to give shape to their dreams of making Somaliland a better place. That was how “Barwaaqo”- which is a Somali word which means “prosperity”- was established. At the outset, the organization understood that its domain needs to be as wide as the issues faced by the millions of underprivileged in the nation.
