We Established in1996

A group of committed gender balanced community development professionals in Somaliland came together to give shape to their dreams of making Somaliland a better place. That was how “Barwaaqo”- which in Somali means “prosperity”- was established. At the outset, the organization understood that its domain needs to be as wide as the issues faced by the millions of underprivileged in the nation.

The Somaliland, even though it is an emerging democratic one, has failed to rescue the majority of its women and children from the clutches of prejudice, discrimination. As Mahatma Gandhi noted- “Poverty is the worst form of violence” and it will take the nation decades if not centuries to come near any kind of Ram-rajya Gandhi had envisioned. It is the endeavor of BVO to serve this unequal society and make it more bearable.

As the name suggests- it fights or promotes poverty reduction. It has taken up the cause of women and children by organizing meetings debates and trainings. In addition BVO has also been involved in food security and livelihoods projects, HIV awareness campaigns as well Gender Based Violence initiatives. While most of this NGO’s activities have taken place within the districts of Hargeisa, Burao, Berbera and Borama, it aspires to reach a national footprint in the years to come.

BVO was founded in 1996 by a committed gender balanced group in Somaliland in1996 the organization is registered at ministry of National planning of Somaliland.
