Hi Sahro,

This photo-album seems to not be shared publicly right now. I think you need to adjust the settings. I'm excited to see this from you!

Looking forward to it,

Wonderul work!

Dear Sahro, This is a beautiful presentation. Those girls have radiant faces, full of optimism and enthusiasm. Thank you for the work you do to promote girls educcation. This presentation can be a powerful tool to use in your work advocating for girls education. I loved the pictures of the female teachers. They are each heros! Please thank them for their work and their commitment and let them know that they have friends around the world cheering for them!
I would love to read the poetry from the buranbuur events. Have you considered compiling a book of the poems illustrated with your photos?

Thank you Potter!

Dear Potter,
Sorry for the late reply. I have been out of the country and advocating for girls education in Europe where we successfully mobilised resources ......380 scholarships for girls to start primary education! How cool is that?!

We have not considered compiling a book of the poems illustrated with my photos, but think that would be awesome!
I will def pass on your salaams to the female teachers in the picture.

Such a powerful message

What a wonderful presentation you have created. I love the universal message about the importance of education for girls and the impact that education can have for a community, nation, and the world. Your pictures are delightful and really capture the key points of female teachers, dedicated classes/schools for girls. I so appreciated your adding the question about equal participation of girls in a mixed gender class.

Thank you for taking the time and energy to be a correspondent and to share your message. It is one that crosses country borders and needs to be said today and tomorrow.

Many Blessings,
Mary Ann

Sorry for my late reply. I was travelling; we were invited to Sweden for a meeting on education and i am happy to say that the Somali diaspora have promised to provide scholarships for 380 girls in Puntland to access primary school and learn fro 4 years. Isnt that awesome?!

education! education! education!

I agree with Stella, that you are a powerful ambassador for girls education and love that your present simple things like access to latrines and shame being constraints to girls eduction in Somalia.
