|Mission||Create, build and strength the refugees and immigrants socially, economically and educationally to be an independent and self-sufficient community.|
The Somali community is one of the major ethnic communities in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Most of the Somali refugees started to arrive here in the mid-1990s and since then, the number of Somali refugees has been increasing rapidly. Also, our community has seen a huge increase in secondary refugees who have moved here for decent employment prospects, top-notch schooling, integrated community support, and better public-safety.
The mission of the Somali Community Development of North Dakota (SCDND) is to bring refugees, new-comers, and the local community together, while promoting self-sufficiency among refugee families through employment, community orientation, continued education, cultural and social support, and economic empowerment. SCDND encourages successful integration of new arrivals in the community via meaningful programming such as, tutoring, mentoring, volunteering, employment placement, conflict resolution, and advocacy.
|Founded||Somali Community Development of ND is non-profit organization, registered and incorporated in May 19th 2008. Its foundation was laid as early as mid 90s with the intent to serve the local Somali Community.|
