About Us.

Over a period of three years, the team provided communications support to UNPOS, UNSOA, AU, AMISOM and the Transitional Federal Government

We built the media relationships to communicate effectively with the domestic Somali media

We hosted over 200 international media on planned organised trips focusing on security, government/politics, humanitarian and economic issues

We created and maintained a dynamic and innovative online communication plan using original state of the art websites and social media and – most of all – original imagery and content

Over three years, we helped to transform both the general perception of Somalia and media access to it.
