Somalia: education against the odds

Private education is growing in the country, despite 20-year-old civil war.

Having grown up through decades of war, thousands of young Somalis are now making the choice to finish their schooling, despite all the difficulties inherent in doing so in an active conflict zone.

The Formal Private Education Network is one of the largest organisations still providing private education in the country, with an enrolment of around 95,000 students.
