Who We Are


SOMA’s mission is rooted in our unwavering commitment to promoting excellence in midwifery practice and advocating for the rights of both mothers and midwives. We strive to empower midwives through education, training, and support, ensuring that every Somali mother receives the care and support she deserves during pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond.


At SOMA, we envision a Somalia where every woman has access to skilled and compassionate midwifery care, regardless of her location or socio-economic status. We believe in a future where maternal and infant mortality rates are significantly reduced, and where midwives are recognized as essential pillars of the healthcare system.
