Come teach some East Africa's brightest students. Founded in 2009, the Abaarso Network enables transformative change in Somaliland, East Africa, through educating and empowering the human capital needed to achieve ethical and effective development. The Network includes three world-class educational institutions that provide high-potential students with critical access, support, and leadership development:
The Abaarso Network includes three school systems in Somaliland (Somalia): a residential high school known as Abaarso School; Barwaaqo Women’s University, offering a four-year degree in education; and Kaabe Montessori primary schools.
Somaliland has been peaceful since it declared independence from Somalia in 1999. Crime is low. However, development and education have lagged. The Abaarso Network educates the next generation of Somali leaders, who will help develop their country after the devastating civil war. Since opening in 2009, Abaarso has sent nearly 200 students on scholarship to top colleges and secondary schools throughout the world, including Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Brown, MIT, Amherst, Swarthmore, and many more. The Abaarso School has been featured on 60 Minutes and in The New York Times, BBC World, and CNN Money, among many others.
Teachers in the Abaarso Network work hard, in difficult conditions. They work long hours, often in a boarding school environment. They also provide an extraordinary opportunity for children and young adults to access world-class education in an otherwise impoverished, under-developed setting.
All staff fully immerse themselves in the school’s mission. They forge lifetime connections with grateful students. Abaarso School teachers gain invaluable classroom teaching experience and receive expert coaching to become better teachers. Experience teaching or working with youth is desirable, but not required.
