ABOUT US

Somali Faces is an award-winning UK-based not-for-profit organisation — with offices in Somalia/Somaliland and Australia — that uses storytelling to catalogue the stories of Somalis and turn the attention of a wide community into action through social media and social fundraising. The organisation aims to change commonly held stereotypes about Somali people, to work towards peacebuilding and to raise funds to support the vulnerable people directly. Somali Faces places a special emphasis on raising awareness for social justice and has provided resettlement support for rape survivors as well as empowering women in IDP camps by improving their livelihoods through creating income generating sources for their families. See our past campaigns for further information.
