Somali First: Promoting Somali-led Development

Project Details


The purpose of Somali First is to promote Somali-led development through impartial facilitation, research and education. Somali First is a joint initiative of Somali social enterprise Transparency Solutions and the University of Bristol launched in 2014. The University of Bristol supports Somali First as an official Strategic Priority and in 2015 gave Transparency Solutions official status as a Strategic Partner. While the immediate goal of Somali First to deliver specific projects, the bigger goal is to contribute to the transformation of the process of development in Somalia so that it is sustainable and locally-led. This deeper purpose is what unifies our diverse projects.
