In South-central Somalia many children struggle to access the life-changing opportunities offered by education, where literacy rates have decreased amidst a backdrop of turmoil and insecurity. Just 30 per cent of children attend primary school, and up to half of these drop out before fourth grade. The same is true to the children in the post-war founded Idman village which has no school at all except a few old tree branches put together under a small roof made up of traditionally weaved material where an increasing number of children are taught Quran. In Idman village, a 5km to the sunset of Luuq district in Gedo region, as the number of school children are on increase, it was recently reported that the tree branches they had put together to study under it was crumbled by the recent floods in South-central. Today, the children have no place to even study Quran and other subjects yet you will see a lot hope in their eyes. “If children grow up illiterate may fall on the hands of extremismist which is somalia’s biggest challenges today” argued by the village head with a loud voice. Earlier this year, the Idman community begin to campaign for the school after learned the DIALOGUE project’s funding campaigns for public and community projects. The DIALOGUE project is a resource mobilization initiative by DRC to contribute 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 and want to do something truly incredible help us transform this small community and build their first primary school. They love education and want to produce educated individuals who will transform their community indeed. The funds will directly go and will be managed by the community who has several committees for accountability purpose. The funds will go to their Salam Bank account linked with EVC+ and withdrawals will be made by committees with signatory needs of more than one individual.
