Abdikarem

Orphan Sponsorship in Somalia

“Abdikarem is 24 years old Somali man who pursues and chases his dream for years. He became a double orphan when he was 7 years old and his aunts brought him up.”

HCI

Education is the steering wheel of human development that leads to a lasting, promising, and constructive future. Human Concern International sponsors disadvantaged young students in many places including Somalia from Primary to higher education to give a sense of hope and optimism. Many HCI sponsored students now reap the seed that HCI and its valued sponsors planted years back as many enrolled and completed higher education, and now work in diverse sectors to assist themselves and their families.

Abdikarem is 24 years old Somali man who pursues and chases his dream for years. He became a double orphan when he was 7 years old and his aunts brought him up. Fortunately, at the age of seven he received HCI Sponsorship. He attended Dayib Guray Primary school and Mohamoud Ahmed Ali secondary school. Soon after he finished his secondary school in 2011; he established his own private school with 500 students and employs seven teachers. After long journey of hard work and dedication he finally achieved his dream of working in education sector and now he is the principal of Sabawanaag primary/intermediate school; achieved his  dream that he will one day work in an area that serve for those in need. Abdikareem earns an income of $1750 per month, built a beautiful home of six rooms and recently married. Now he is a role model for many young Somali students in HCI Child Sponsorship Program as he has proved his dream.

He has this to say: “I am so happy and grateful to both HCI and to my sponsor for making my sponsorship available and taking me to my dream. Now I earn $1750 per month, built a beautiful home of six rooms and just married Alday called Nimco Ali. As a result, without your support, I would not be in my destination and I would not be able to learn and earn. Without your assistance, I wouldn’t complete my education. Without you I could not assist my family now. Without you I would be in cycle of poverty and trap in abject poverty.” 

“I am so thankful for both HCI and my sponsor as you are kind INGO and kind person. God bless my sponsor in where ever you are in the world. I reaped your generosity and I beg you to keep that compassionate personality, supporting vulnerable and marginalized groups across the world, Allah will give you more than you offered vulnerable communities. In expression of words I may not communicate my feelings as I could like but my sponsor would feel what I feel in if he were in my position”  

Abdikarim, 24, HCI beneficiary
