Drilling water wells Project

In many of rural villages lack clean drinking water. Villagers travel miles and miles in search of drinking water. Cansoma plans to drill water wells for these villagers. The impact of having access to a safe, clean, reliable water source cannot be overstated. When Families no longer have to move around in search of water, they can enlarge their Farm animals', plant and irrigate crops, send their children to school. Death and disease from contaminated water will decline. Accessible water is the first step towards eradicating the generational cycle of poverty. 

Soup Kitchen Program

For 18 years Somalia has been in state of civil war with non functioning weak government. The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) says the total number of displaced across the country has reached one million. Internally displaced persons, especially, women and children are mostly affected in this chaotic situation; a food kitchen program that is being implemented by Cansoma is to serve thousands of marginalized children and women to receive a life-saving meal.

Most of these people are distressed and displaced, and have endured the consequences of several wars that have raged in Somalia for the past 18 years. Minority of the needy people is not displaced; however circumstances are making them too weak and vulnerable to seek the meal at the feeding kitchens in Mogadishu Districts.

Many families have lost father who was the sole bread winner. Often times widowed mother of four, five or more children have no one to help them but to seek a meal from a food kitchen. Because of the growing need of meals, food kitchens with limited resources had turned away many families. These families have no one to provide them food. With the help of humanitarian agencies we are establishing soup kitchens in Mogadishu where we plan to provide meals to these needy families and individuals.

Reforestation Program

This project will address the problem of de-forestation by encouraging tree planting and other projects to mitigate the effects of climate change. Trees will be planted in villages to prevent desertification. Our foundation will provide trees for the local population to plant.

We hope that this program will make local villagers aware of environmental issues that need to be addressed such as deforestation. We will also encourage locals to stop cutting trees for firewood. Awareness of the need for environmental protection and tree planting will also be raised among youth through school visits.
