Mohamed Ugas

Mohamed Ugas Project

Mohamed Ugas Elementary and Middle School – the school is located in Mohamed Ugas village in eastern Somaliland. Similar to other nomadic villages, Mohamed Ugas village struggles with abject poverty.

Ongoing Challenges – Nomadic families from the Mohamed Ugas area live off the land and are vulnerable to reoccurring relocations driven by the climate. The area has rainy and dry seasons. As a result, students from these families have a high dropout rate from school with a slim chance of returning to their education. The lack of ongoing basic education leads to a high rate of adult illiteracy that is estimated to be 90% among nomadic families. Karin Foundation Solution – our goal is to encourage and keep nomadic children in school.
