Somali Women’s Studies Centre

Our vision is to be a catalyst for positive change in the lives of Somali women through enhancing their capacity to undertake research and providing them a forum to tell their stories, to articulate their specific needs, and to exert their agency by calling for solutions that will effectively address the marginalization they experience in Somalia.

Our mission is to increase the scope of research, encompassing women of all ages in both rural and urban regions of Somalia, the internally displaced, refugees, the diaspora community, and members of minority groups who are involved in grassroots activities and in the political arena, by facilitating the production and publication of research material that examine fundamental issues and challenges relevant to these groups of Somali women. SWSC is registered both in Somalia and Kenya, with its headquarters being in Nairobi.
