Abaarso School provides world class secondary school education to the best and brightest Somalis from grades 7-12. Abaarso stresses its core values - Integrity, Tenacity, and Critical Reasoning. Located in Somaliland, Abaarso's success has been astonishing, with its students earning $7 million worth of international scholarships, despite the school only graduating 2 classes. Abaarso students are now excelling in America earning accolades inside and outside the classroom.
  • Barwaaqo University is women's teacher training college located in Baliga Cas, Somaliland. 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 Abaarso Network, 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.
