Taakulo Somali Community is a multifaceted non-governmental, non-profit making, non-political and non-partisan development and humanitarian aid organization established in 2007 and headquartered in Hargeisa, Somaliland. Taakulo is a Somali word meaning “helping/aiding”. Working in partnership with UN, international, and National organizations, Taakulo is dedicated to helping the disadvantaged people and communities throughout Somaliland by engaging in development and related activities and also providing relief support and assistance, facilitating and promoting participatory local community activities and programs that emphasize human dignity and self-reliance.
Taakulo Organization was established to assist the Somali community, to whom time has tested their resilience to the tipping point, drought and famine scavenging their livelihood, war and conflict avenging their economy on the other hand. The projects are basically based on the needs of the communities in which they are implemented where the beneficiaries always take part in the planning process. Taakulo engages on a long-term commitment, partnership approach with the beneficiaries in implementing the Projects. The objective is to set up a regional program concentrating on a particular sector, such as Health, education, water and sanitation, Income Generation, Orphan sponsorship program, disability and people with special needs, emergency respond or improving food security in the country among others.
2020 was one of the hardest years for Somaliland in decades. Flooding, poor, and erratic rainfall distribution, COVID-19, conflict, and recurring locust invasions heavily impacted on the economy and livelihoods of people. Additionally, the coastal areas of Puntland and Somaliland were hit by cyclone Gati in November 2020, resulting in a sharp increase in humanitarian needs which many organizations – including Oxfam Somalia – responded to. While the performance of the 2020 Gu rain was near normal, the Deyr rain of 2020 has been categorized a complete failure due to the La Nina effect. These climatic shocks triggered severe water and food shortages in many regions in Somalia. Since October 2020 regional administrations, communities and humanitarian agencies have been sending alerts about looming drought conditions in many parts of Somaliland.
The price of water has already more than doubled. According to Oxfam’s own market assessment, one barrel of water is currently being sold at an average of USD 4.5 per barrel, with some villages reporting over USD 7 per barrel. This is forcing the most vulnerable households to travel long distances to fetch water and/or opt for poor water quality and risk their lives. The most affected communities include IDPs and low-income host communities. Women and girls are at high risk of harassment, rape and attacks by wild animals as they travel far in search of water for their families.
Taakulo Somali Community and Oxfam have partnered to respond a “Droughts Appeal”, through the funds of Rapid Response Mechanism project funded by Swedish International Development cooperation Agency SIDA, amidst the appeal, Taakulo and OXFAM are implementing a set of response to ease WASH and livelihood implications at Togdheer region, Somaliland, having the contextual priority to Buuhoodle district and its superb.
