Thank you for joining us in our two part event to commemorate Somaliland's 30th Anniversary! For those who missed it we have you covered with both events now on our Youtube Channel.
Our first event was on the night of May 18th via Instagram Live and more celebratory in nature as we brought on Hodan Abdirahman, Fathia Absie, and SLPA member as well as digital podcaster Amina Isir. The event was lead by our committee member Edil Yousuf and was a great way to bring in our 30 year milestone of peace, prosperity, and development.
SLPA is off to a strong start for the new year as our first event was a success! We wanted to share with you an innovative event SLPA held in Hargeisa, Somaliland a few weeks ago. The event was hosted and organized by SLPA committee member, Faisa Ali, who brilliantly guided the conversation for the 15 SLPA attendees. The SLPA members were from a vast variety of backgrounds, visiting Somaliland either for work, vacation, or potential relocation.
