An innovative, unique and prestigious ceremony, The Welsh Somali Achievement Awards pays tribute to inspiring Somali success stories from all walks of life, and recognises inspirational role models from the fields of education, community, volunteering, sport and special accolades.

Mental Health & Maternal Somaliland Health Projects

We deliver maternal health training programs in order to improve the lives of African women and help maternal health workers in Somaliland to save the lives of mothers and children during child birth.

We sponsor and support financially some of the families with members who have mental health issues, so they can purchase the basic food and medication they require to improve their symptoms.

Inspire – Aspire Project

This project addresses the academic and career mentoring needs of Somali youth based in Wales, as a result of many of these young people being the first generation to pursue further education in their families they had a lack of access to both knowledge and professional role models.
