Nearly 60 % of Somalis live in pastoralist communities. However, children in these communities typically lack access to quality education opportunities. Gubad, a small agro-pastoral village located the west of Luuq town with almost a population of 90 households is completely lacking any formal education structures. Three years ago some community members rallied to build a school under a tree but it didn’t work. Few e children are sent to schools in Luuq town which is 6km from the village, an arduous journey that takes hours of walking under the hot sun. However, the majorities of the children stays in the village and never experience the life changing chance of education. “Education is what our village has been without. I can’t read and write, and I don’t my children to have the same path. I want them to study,” said Hasan Dhuhow, a father and Chief from Gubad. Earlier this year some community members have learnt the DIALOGUE project initiatives and re-organized the community’s old priority of building a primary school to help the ever increasing numbers school age children in the village. The DIALOGUE project is a resource mobilization initiative by DRC that contributes 50% of the total cost of community and public project to create trust between Somali people and their government in the management of their own development. If you value education, the Gubad community in its humblest terms wants you to join and support them to build the first primary school in the village to give the school age children an access to primary education.
