Practical resources for pastoralists in Somaliland

Trade-Aid Boxes provide all the tools needed to set up as a carpenter, a tailor or a teacher. The people that PENHA works with in Somaliland like the concept of “a livelihood in a box”. These boxes give people tools that enable them to do things for themselves.

PENHA distributed Trade Aid boxes, for teachers, carpentry and tailoring/dressmaking to local schools, cooperatives and women’s groups in six villages - Abdi Dheere, Haydanle, Isamel Dirie, Awbarkhadle, Dinqal and Dheenta - in Odweyne District, and in the Maroodi Jeex District around the capital, Hargeisa.

A detailed and illustrated description of the distribution of the boxes can be seen in the attached pdf.
