About Books For Somalia:

“We believe access to education for children is the most critical component to combat the challenges facing Somalia today” - Mahamad Cali of SACMN

SACMN is working with Books For Africa to bring a full 40-foot sea container of books to fill the shelves of libraries and schools that have been built around Somalia. The Somali-American community is helping to support this effort from the Twin Cities (Minnesota). Project representatives will be going to Somali-owned businesses, including the Somali malls, around the Cities to talk to fellow members of the Somali-American community about their project and the importance of giving back to build education systems in Somalia.
