It goes without saying that raising a community’s awareness on the importance of a healthy and green environment is an integral part of Adeso’s effort to change the story of African communities. Given the ongoing environmental situation that is threating to turn Somalia’s landmass into a desert within the next 50 years land restoration and reclamation is needed more than ever. It has become a matter of fact that it is not enough to rehabilitative the land but to secure curative solutions needed to preserve it from manmade and natural factors contributing to its degradation.
In Somalia, many youth suffer from high rates of unemployment as a result these they become idol and often at times end up joining militias and criminal gangs. The unemployment situation has fuelled an increase in migration, leading to hundreds of young men and women travelling to Europe in search of jobs. This journey is usually unsafe with numerous stories of many of them perishing along the way.
Year by year, with your support, we have grown steadily, developing and strengthening our relationships with communities on the ground. We have expanded our work, first within Somalia and then to Kenya and South Sudan.
With your support, this is how we changed the story in 2015.
