Our combined first-hand experience regarding Somalia’s opportunities and challenges is pooled with our immense network of regional and local contacts and an in-depth understanding of the complexities of the Somali landscape, helping turn challenges into opportunities and engaging local communities to develop home grown solutions to threats and challenges.
After more than two decades of conflict, one generation of Somalia’s children lost the opportunity for formal education and other benefits of a stable childhood. Somalia has one of the world’s lowest enrollment rates for primary school-aged children – only 30 per cent of children are in school and only 40 per cent of these are girls. Further, only 18 per cent of children in rural households are in school. Extremely high rates of poverty in communities across Somalia make it difficult for parents to afford school fees. In many areas, parents are required to pay for their children’s education, and poverty remains the main reason they give for not sending their children to school.
ISIR Consulting realizes that the future belongs to the nation that best educates its people. We therefore support a project that equips schools in Somalia with Science Lab Equipment and supplies to improve the education quality and student achievement. At ISIR Consulting, we understand the importance of having up-to-date science lab equipment supplies at schools as Science is different from any other subject and in order to understand its concepts, one has to look beyond the books and conventional classroom teaching.

Warzone Initiatives, former Arc Solutions. Two brave friends leave for war troubled Somalia to find out what they can give to the people of Somalia. On their first trip they found out that only about 30% of the people have access to clean drinking water. They visited a school in Mogadishu that educates 1,200 kids from all ages every day, that have no clean drinking water. Once back in the US, they research what kind of water filter system could work best for this school in Somalia, so these kids have clean drinking water every day. On their 2nd trip to Mogadishu, they return with a Gravity Water Filter System and install it in just a few days.
Our team has distributed 10 tons of Future Life high energy food to drought affected people in internally displaced people (IDPs) camps scattered in the suburbs around Mogadishu. The supported IDPs are part of a larger group of people who have fled the recent drought and famine in Somalia.
Big thanks to CityHope Disaster Relief International that sent the 10 tons of food and a team that worked with us on the ground and made it possible to provide the high energy food to 1,300 families and Big thanks to Somali Foundation for Relief & Development SOFORD as well, a local NGO that made the food distribution possible.
