Hoodaale is a town in the Somali Region in Ethiopia, near Dhagahbur with a population of 10,000 people. Most of the inhabitants are former nomads who have settled down to find more settled lifestyle. Many nomads continue to move there. Residents express high need for a center for serving food distribution, education, worship, library, livestock care, farming, and water wells.
Phase one of the projects will focus on establishing a school and Community center. Mr. Abdisalam Adam, a community leader and educator from Minnesota, USA, visited the town in the summer of 2018. The town was negatively affected by conflict and lack of development. Please, help invest in changing the lives of a vulnerable population in desperate need of resources. The cost of phase one consisting of a multipurpose community center and school will be $35,000. ARAHA will help supervise the implementation of the project.
