The Mohamed Sheik Ali Fund for the Youth of Somalia
Our friend and brother, Mohamed Sheik Ali, was murdered on August 2, 2018. He was leaving a restaurant in Mogadishu when he was shot, fatally. He was 31 years old.
It was not Mohamed’s death that made him special, but his inspiring life and pioneering work. More than anything, Mohamed wanted to create a better future for the youth of Somalia. He understood how important it is for young people to feel that they matter, that they contribute to society. That they can change the world.
With the blessing and support of Mohamed’s family, we are raising funds to continue his work. Through a crowdfunding campaign and other fundraising efforts, we are setting up an impact fund that will help Somali youth build a brighter future through work and education.

We are sending out a call-for-action to the entire Somali diaspora, to the vibrant startup communities around the world – as well as to everyone choosing to believe in a better world.
Every donation matters. If you want to contribute in some other way, please contact us. We will be happy to work with you.
Please, share this with your friends, family, colleagues, on social media, and so on. This is a verified crowdfunding campaign supported by Mohamed’s family, but remember to be wary of scams.
You can follow the updates here and on our crowdfunding page, as well as on our social media channels. We are all helping out as volunteers. We will ensure that your donation will be managed in a transparent, ethical manner.
Thank you and God bless you,
Mr. Africa Nasir (Mogadishu)
