About MIDA FINNSOM Project
IOM Migration for Development in Africa (MIDA) programmes focus on strengthening the institutional capacities of African States through a structured framework of mobilization of resources involving countries of destination, countries of origin and diasporas. In Somalia, through its MIDA programme, IOM has been helping the Somali Government since 2008 to strengthen the capacity of Somali institutions so that they can be more effective in responding to the needs of Somali people. The MIDA FINNSOM South Central Somalia project is funded by the Government of Finland. Similarly, to the MIDA FINNSOM Health projects implemented in Somaliland and Puntland by IOM Helsinki with support from the Finnish Government, this project aims to facilitate the transfer of skills, competencies and knowledge of qualified Somali expatriates to public institutions in Somalia, with focus on two sectors: health and education. The beneficiary institution will host the qualified Somali expatriate, and will be responsible to provide a safe and secure work environment. The IOM Mogadishu MIDA staff will monitor the expatriates while on assignment.
