This publication (published in 2011) celebrates 25 years of Concern's work in Somalia.

Concern Worldwide began operating in Somalia twenty five years ago. Over the years, our team has responded to major emergencies and the needs of hundreds of thousands of Somali people living in poverty. Today, we are working in six regions in south and central Somalia, and have just expanded our programme to Somaliland in the north.

This booklet illustrates the pillars of our programmes in education; food, income and markets; health and in emergencies. It also shows how the resilience of the Somali people, and our partnerships with them, have helped bring about lasting changes to the lives of the poor. Our Stories of Change introduce you to Hussein, Muumina, Hawa and Amina who are lifting themselves out of poverty with the support of Concern.

This publication covers aid activities implemented with the financial assistance of several donors, including Irish Aid, Bank of Ireland Staff Fund, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, EU and ECHO. The ideas, opinions and comments herein are entirely the responsibility of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent or reflect the policies of any donors.
