About Fursad Fund

Background

Somalia is recovering from two decades of civil war, famine, piracy and terrorism. Despite ranking at the bottom of nearly all global indices, the country has made great strides over the past five years. Much of the country is now in the hands of the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS).

After many years of dominance, the violent groups are now on the back foot. Reconstruction is at an all-time high. Trade is regaining momentum. Thousands of refugees and highly skilled Diaspora members are returning as more regions stabilize.

Mission

To contribute to sustainable development and peace in Somalia, by mobilizing all Somalis to be part of the recovery process and create opportunities.

Vision

To envision a strong, just and progressive Somalia, where citizens take the ownership and work together to build a cohesive society.
