Somalia/Internally displaced people (IDPs)/ IDPs find very difficult to to engage in regular economic activities that could provide a stable income for them and their families. Most of them do casual labour such as collecting carbage and washing clothes for the host community. Girls from IDPs settlements in Galkayo get trained at the Galkayo Education Center for Peace and Development on sawing skills. Ayan Adbi Ali, 16, from Mogadishu, she fled four years ago because of fighting. Ayan would like to teach other IDP girls from poor families skills that she has learnt so they can provide for their families. So far 60 girls have been trained at the center not only on sawing skills but also on sanitary wear production. UNHCR/R. Gangale/May 2011
