There is an endless conflict in Somalia for the past 17 years since the destruction of the central government in 1991. The country is in dire need of peace for the people, reconstruction for the land and revival of the economy. Three Levels on intervention: Micro (individual) Mezzo (group) and Macro (organizations & Communities) are necessary for the restoration of peace and stability in Somalia. At the individual level, many Somalis suffer from post-traumatic stress, depression, and grievances; sleep deprivation, disillusionment and lack of control on one’s destiny. At the community level, Somali communities face many problems resulting from the lack of the basic social services and the destruction of all social institutions in the country. This poem is a summary of what the country needs to get rid of the current mess. The grassroots approach is utilized in this starting with the individual and going up to the national level. It discusses the individual and community needs for intervention. The national intervention needs will be discussed in my future writings:

What Individuals Need: JOBS

Job and opportunity creation

Overall Crisis intervention

Basic life skills training

Suitable Interpersonal counseling.


What Communities Need: MEDIATION

Mediation of disputants by a neutral party

Establishment of common social ideology

Development of key economic resources

Integrated framework for handling grievances

Administration based on socio-economic justice

Tackling of poverty and abolition of evil practice

 Incarceration of tribal loyalty and nurturing or patriotism

Organization of community-based education of nationalism

Neighbourhood development to achieve objectives of mediation.

very well stated poem on peace and balanced government.

Sounds like the plan you outline would go a very long way toward
easing the suffering and stopping the vicious circle of destruction and inequity. I hope and pray that things move in that direction. The sooner and better! Somalians do not deserve to be treated this way!! Thank you for keeping their plight from disappearing into the maw of indifference, or in some cases, outright hostility. Bless you, 'Pea' <3

The present situation of Somalia is the JOINT-picture of the FIVE PERMANENT LORDS OF THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL, which keeps playing with Somalia since its creation; and the shameful omission of the religious groups. (Seventy percent.)

"Somali Social Policy" is a call to good sense and JUSTICE.

I hope that the leaders that control seventy-five percent of the SOULS in Somalia decide to say YES to Humanity and JUSTICE.

In respect,

Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

From individual to community to national level is the basis of constructing Pyramidal style of adminstration in which the the power is concentrated in the bottom while ceremonial authority rests at the apex. Thanks Abdullahi for your deep concern and insight to think of your motherland in a more ethical and intellectual way. People like you make the best of leaders in the world. Thanks

Somalia, a land of unarmed gentle people, being oppressed by armed thugs in love with their nome-de-guerre War Lords, a disgusting combination of unlimited greed, grotesque abuse of power and a religion so twisted and perverted by a few that not even Allah wants to have anything with them to do.
But His children suffer as they oppressors thrive.
Well penned, your drop of water will one day go through the stone.
