Teaching Positions in Jaleelo, Somaliland, Somalia

Posted By: Barwaaqo University <aramberg@abaarsoschool.org>
Date: Monday, 10 July 2017, at 7:43 p.m.

Barwaaqo University is opening in the Fall of 2017 as a higher learning institution teaching young women to become educators in Somaliland. Barwaaqo is the second education institution supported by the Horn of Africa Education Development Fund, the first is the Abaarso School of Science & Technology, featured in the New York Times and BBC World, a non-profit boarding school educating the best and the brightest Somali students in the Horn of Africa. The schools are located outside of Hargeisa, Somaliland, a breakaway, self-governing region of Somalia. Barwaaqo University builds on Abaarso's success and the need for a quality local university. Barwaaqo will replicate and scale the Abaarso education system that focuses on core fundamentals and character education. The school encourages ethics and a strong sense of responsibility for improving the students' community. While only founded in 2009, Abaarso School has achieved success not seen in the area for several decades. After four graduating classes, Abaarso has placed over 60 Somali students on international scholarships including dozens in the United States. Abaarso School graduates are enrolled at top schools including Harvard, Yale, Brown, MIT, Georgetown, Amherst, Brandeis, and many more.

Barwaaqo University is looking for individuals interested in dedicating at least one year to teaching and building our community from the ground up. Teachers will help build a school culture that puts the growth of the school and the students first, while finding a way around the challenges inherent in working in the developing world. Between the classroom, preparation, student groups, office hours, and other projects, teachers should expect 50-70 hours of work each week. With successful performance, significant upward mobility is possible for staff members.

We are currently accepting applications to start in September 2017 for Barwaaqo University's inaugural year. Barwaaqo University will be a women's-only boarding institution and at this time is only seeking female applicants.

Benefits include: Round-trip Airfare, Emergency Health/Evacuation Insurance, Room & Board (no food expenses), $250/month stipend. Total package is approx. $6500 USD per person.

Interested applicants should submit resume and transcript to aramberg@abaarsoschool.org.
