Our Values and Goals

At Kobciye we acknowledge the current fragmented state of the Somali community. We believe that by coupling education with opportunity the social strife and conflict, which dominate Somali communities, will decrease and lead to more strengthened and empowered communities.

Our values are to empower the Somali community through the “three E’s”: Engagement, Education and Empowerment.

 

  • Engagement: Our aim is to engage the Somali community and to assist them in taking charge of their futures and determining their own destinies. This is done through responsible civic engagement and social discussion. We facilitate the environment in which these engagements take place, expand and ultimately flourish.

 

  • Education: Education and literacy is the basic component towards our mission to empower and enlighten. We strongly believe in the power of knowledge as the foundation towards a stronger and more united community. This is done by researching and conducting assessments of specific Somali communities and tailoring programs and opportunities to maximize the needs of each specific community. This may take the form of basic literacy; teaching the basics of reading and writing in communities where the functional literacy rate can be as low as 5%. It may also take the form of more tailored academic skill development such as computer literacy and technological training. Using modern technologies and acquiring basic computer skills can drastically broaden an individual’s employment potential.

 

  • Empowerment: We consider this the most important element of our mandate. We believe that pairing the skills acquired at Kobciye with the proper networking opportunities will result in our goal of building a productive community base. This is done through active partnership with local and national leaders who are continuing to turn to the Somali community as a source for labour, intellect and resources. Our goal is to full equip individuals with the tools to be empowered to develop themselves first and by extension the community at large. This includes employment search skills such as resume building and job interview preparedness. Through our continuing collaborations with the wider community they will also have access to employment networks and resources.

Core Value

  • Strong leadership commitment to Change/Transformation
  • Social activism and consciously directed compassion as integral parts of our organization’s strategy.
  • Cares deeply about ethics, justice, human rights, peace and the impact of present day actions on future generation
  • Observe the highest ethical principles, openness, transparency and accountability
  • Believes and promotes volunteerism and community contribution
  • Positive culture that supports  innovation and learning, facilitation of responsibility and empowerment
  • Recognize the importance of strategic alliances and strong partnerships with local civil society, and  the local community

    Youth make up a significant proportion of the Eastleigh community. It is essential that they feel they have an effective stake both socially and economically within the community. Integration of the youth is essential in community development. This helps keep crime rates low and minimize insecurity. We attempt to provide youth an alternative to some of the negative influences in the community. Youth are often blamed for the rise in insecurity and are vulnerable to people seeking to exploit their frustrations. Our programs help youth identify and capitalize on opportunities so they don’t fall into the traps of extremism/radicalization. We...
