Community Concepts Inc. Launches Its Horn of Africa Operations

Baidoa, Somalia, July 2016 

Abdirazak Sabtow, our regional manager at Community Concepts Inc in Waltham, Massachusetts, successfully handed over a livestock project comprising of a dozen milk cows and a score of goats to the local youth’ association in Baidoa, Somalia. The group will utilize these animals to obtain milk for self-consumption and sale within the community.

The project, which is in line with the organization ethos, is touted to improve the nutrition and health of the youth while providing them with some income for herd upkeep/maintenance and expansion.

This project financing was generated within the organization and from a few erstwhile Boston and Somali community friends. The project collected $13,450 (USD) from January to April 2016. The profit has been well spent, and accountability reports are in the pipeline.
