A newly formed partnership, between an education charity and the Mo Farah Foundation is hoping to inspire and empower young people in Somalia.
The Tauheedul Relief Trust will be working with the foundation and will begin with a programme to support schools in Somalia with resources, books, furniture, meals and health initiatives.
The partnership was launched with the presentation of a £20,000 donation to the Mo Farah Foundation by the Tauheedul Relief Trust in Blackburn on the 10th February 2014. Funds received will be used by the Mo Farah Foundation to implement and deliver key areas of their education programme.
Mo Isap, Vice Chair of the Tauheedul Trust said: “At Tauheedul, we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of children through education.
“Our partnership with Mo Farah Foundation is underpinned by a vision of more children in Somalia attending school and having all the opportunities that this brings.
“The programme to support schools is an example of how our partnership will raise the aspirations of thousands of children and young people in Somalia.”
