ABOUT US

Organizational Background

A group of committed gender balanced community development and professionals in Somaliland came together to give shape to their dreams of making Somaliland a better place. That was how “Barwaaqo” which is a Somali word that means “prosperity” was established in 1996 and registered at the ministry of National Planning and development. The organization understood that its domain needs to be as wide as the issues faced by the millions of underprivileged. Under this registration, Barwaaqo Voluntary organization could perform social development work in Somaliland. BVO nurtures the status of being a formal NGO.
