Our Mission

Abaarso School nurtures the academic, intellectual, and character development of promising Somali boys and girls, so they can effectively and ethically advance their society.

The Abaarso School of Science & Technology is an educational boarding school for boys and girls, founded in 2009 by Jonathan Starr, an American hedge fund manager who moved to Somaliland with the intention of transforming the country through education. The Abaarso School challenges each student to develop intellectually within a war-torn society and reject the status quo driven by terrorism and piracy.

Today, more than 80 Abaarso students are now studying abroad on scholarship, mostly in the United States, including highly selective institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Brown and MIT.
