One Earth Future and Shuraako are proud to present the short film “Somali Women Cultivating Sustainable Peace”. The film showcases several female farm owners in the Garowe/Puntland region of Somalia supported through Shuraako’s Nordic Horn of Africa Opportunities Fund.
As 2022 begins, Shuraako continues to provide Nordic Horn of Africa Opportunities Fund loans for businesses in the Somali region that are building markets and livelihoods in several important sectors. With a focus on companies that provide youth employment and utilize renewable energy, Shuraako recently approved new loans for three companies. Through these investments, Shuraako aims to foster economic growth, create jobs, and promote stability and peace.
As a program of the One Earth Future Foundation, Shuraako believes that women play a vital role in sustaining a more peaceful world. Shuraako tracks the addition of jobs for women for each of the companies with which we work through midterm progress reports.
