WA-Abaarso Tech Somaliland Partnership
Abaarso Tech, a non-profit organization and boarding school in Somaliland, was founded by WA alum Jonathan Starr. He seeks to offer world-class education to people of the Horn of Africa. Now in its inaugural year, the school is attracting top local and international minds to teach Somaliland’s most promising youth. Additionally, it provides professional development for teachers and others professionals, and assists rural populations by placing teachers in village schools and working on community improvements. In 2010-2011, students in the 10th grade AP World History classes will collaborate on-line with students at Abaarso Tech (click here).
