*Part of the collected funds will be donated to Barwaaqo University in Somaliland, through the US-based non-profit entity, the Horn of African Education Development (HED) Fund, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Established in Fall 2017, Barwaaqo University is a new women’s university, initially offering a School of Education to train the next generation of Somali primary school teachers. Future expansions will include a School of Business/Management, School of Information Technology, and potentially a Nursing or Engineering school, all to provide Somali women with the core skills required to help build the country’s infrastructure and support their families.
