PROBLEM STATEMENT

The country of Somalia shows records of conflicts that have destroyed the countries basic infrastructures. These conflicts have displaced lives, which led to the deaths of many Somali citizens. This is due to an ongoing conflict of political changes which has led to the destruction of all sectors. Most of the youth in Somalia are unable to attend school due to the civil war. Majority of the schools in Somalia are private, which makes it too expensive for students. The war made it difficult for students to attend primary schools let alone universities. The students have the drive to learn, but the cost of education is a major barrier to their futures. These ongoing civil conflicts have produced a generation of people who lack experience in the development on an effective government, leading to dis-advantaged access to education, healthcare, and basic social needs. To address the issue at hand, SRO is dedicated to helping local youth take advantage of the resources available here locally. Such resources include education, healthcare, and stability.
