Project Background and Problem Analysis:

Since the Somaliland government declared that the Somali north regions are separated the rest part of the Somalia and nominated by itself as Somaliland republic, the Awdal Region which is the one of the east regions located the far eastern Conner and gateway border of Somalia as well as puntland administration remained politically un – contented, due to this all government structure were not administrated well but only existed as nomination.

All the public service was not functioned many positions from different thoughts arisen and political incidences taken were not high tension.

A year passed with no changes thus life was very terrible for the Awdal community and most of the population including optimists well doers to finally begin to welcome the complete administration of Somaliland in the Awdal region, in order to receive at least the basic social service (result of the Somaliland military seizing in Boorama the capital of region in 15, October 2007). Many verbal decisions were announced but former Somaliland Government of UDUB party use the regions as weapon for fighting the opposition parties of Kulmiye and UCID. Many people of the region were believing that something positive would come out, but to this day, nothing has changed.
