Who We Are
Abaarso Network is a group of 3 educational institutions dedicated to training the next generation of Somali leaders, and spreading access to high quality education across the country.
We are currently hiring for two of our institutions: Abaarso School, an elite 7th-12th grade boarding school, and Barwaaqo University, Somaliland's only women's residential university.
Abaarso School students became the first in their country in over 30 years to matriculate to US universities, including Harvard, Yale, MIT, Brown, Columbia, Cornell and UPenn. The school has been featured on 60 Minutes and in the New York Times, BBC, CNN, and more. Abaarso is an American-accredited school that has received funding support from USAID.
Barwaaqo University is creating life-long careers for women in Somaliland. In a country where female unemployment is well over 80%, our students are highly successful at finding stable, high-paying jobs within 3 months of graduation. Barwaaqo offers degrees in education and communications, filling a crucial gender gap - fewer than 10% of teachers in Somaliland are women.
Abaarso Network operates in Somaliland, the independent but unrecognized country in the Horn of Africa. Somaliand has had peaceful transitions of power in democratically elected governments since it declard independence from Somalia in 1991. However, poverty and unemployment rates are sky-high while life expectancy and school attendance remains low.
Teachers in Abaarso Network work hard under difficult conditions. They provide extraordinary opportunities for young women and children to access a world-class education in an otherwise impoverished, underdeveloped setting. Faculty at both Barwaaqo and Abaarso have 18-20 hours per week of classroom teaching, with another 30+ hours of extracurricular responsibilities, including advising, office hours, clubs, sports and administrative duties.
Compensation packages include monthly stipends that vary based on experience and scope of work, room and board, round-trip airfare, health insurance and bonuses for those who stay beyond one year. Teacher-leaders may receive additional stipends.
