Women's Empowerment

SAACID was originally incorporated as a women’s organisation with a mandate for women’s advocacy and women’s rights in Somalia. This mandate has broadened over the last two decades, as persistent grinding anarchy has left Somalia without any effective governance or social services. 

Advocacy issues for Somali women and girls remain at the heart of all SAACID’s programme initiatives, whether it is through anti-FGM forums, numeracy and literacy training, vocational training, programming in conflict resolution, or training in governance.

Strategically, SAACID wants to expand our investment heavily in education for girls and women, and micro-credit so that women can be economically empowered.
