Because access to education is access to change.

University of Hargeisa, Faculty of Education: We are honored to partner with Somaliland’s most prestigious higher learning institute from the beginning. This partnership has been successful as it fulfills AKHRI’s mandate to empower women by providing jobs for its female graduates.

Organization Info
Empowered rural communities can drive change when they recognize everyone’s needs, as well as understand their rights and the socio-economic factors which affect their lives. Once empowered, rural communities are better able to build constructive relationships with government institutions, the private sector, and civil society; they will also navigate the changing world around them, make decisions about their own lives, and contribute to their communities.

Our Values
Our values are centered on four commitments that we use to define our work, our approach and who we are. We use these to guide our work and our behavior as partners for good. They are:

  • Commitment to Lifelong Learning
    We do what we do because we believe it is the right thing to do. We strive to break the cycle of illiteracy among rural women and girls. We work with passion, enthusiasm, a belief in our mission, and in our people.
  • Respect
    We demonstrate respect for each other, our partners, and the people we serve in communities. We work through relationships based on trust, respect, and equity with our students and partners. We value all people equally.
  • Community Engagement
    We bring together communities, the private sector, governments, organizations and the full range and resources of our networks to improve dialogue, create prosperity, stability, peace, and positive change. We learn from each other. We embrace technology as a means to better connect the world around us and take advantage of the digital dividend.
  • Empowerment
    We believe that empowering women develops the ability to organize and influence the direction of social change, create a more just social and economic order, nationally and internationally. We empower women and girls to better contribute to their health, families, community, and society as a whole.
