Empowering People

Support our Cause

Help us support people in need

Be motivated by a desire to make a positive impact through helping those who are less fortunate within Minnesota.

Each one of us can make small changes in many lives

We aim to promote sustainable development among Horn of Africa communities within Minnesota.

We use resources to address community challenges

We seek resources from well wishers to make a positive impact among Horn of Africa communities who reside within Minnesota.

Supporting Marginalized Groups

Marginalized groups from the Horn of Africa such as women, children, refugees, internally displaced persons, and minority communities within Minnesota, often face discrimination, exclusion, and lack of access to basic services, including education, healthcare, social programs, international programs and employment. By supporting these groups, we can promote social justice and ensure that everyone has an equal chance to succeed.


We work to raise awareness about issues affecting marginalized communities within Minnesota through lobbying the government and international organizations to take action.
