The Journey Back Home - Documentary Screening

The Journey Back Home - Documentary Screening

WSSP Annual Conference to be held on Saturday 16th at UCL Cruciform Lecture Theatre.

Asalaamu Calaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu Everyone.

After a year and a half of hard work in launching and executing Operation Restore Home, we are now in a position to reflect and share with you all the experience of making The Journey Back Home to Somalia and the fruits of our labour to date. We will do this by screening a short documentary of the journey that some of us made to various parts of the country last summer in order to contribute to development in the areas of Healthcare, Education and Agriculture. In addition to the documentary screening, we will also have short testimonials of experiences of the situation on the ground in various regions visited by our members (including Somaliland, Puntland and Mogadishu) as well as a Q&A session of the opportunities and challenges facing the young leaders of tomorrow in helping to shape the future of our country.

We realise a large proportion of you live outside London and for those of you who are interested but cannot attend, we will endeavour to provide a live feed of the event via the internet but we cannot promise that this will happen at this point. Further information will be provided closer to the date of the event. The conference will inshallah be held on Saturday February 16th at University College London, Cruciform Lecture Theatre 1. The address is Gower Street, WC1E 6BT and the venue is accessible on foot by either of the following tube stations: Euston Square, Euston Station or Warren Street Station. The shortest by walking distance is Euston Square.

As an inclusive organisation representing the interests of Somali Students and Professionals around the world, the conference is not just about the efforts of WSSP but will also aim to bring together various youth/community leaders and organisations who are engaged in improving the situation in Somalia. We therefore invited Anti-Tribalism Movement (ATM), London Somali Youth Forum (LSYF), Somali Economic Forum, East Africa Energy Forum (EAEF) and a representative from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO)  who will give a talk on the new Somali & UK relations.

The conference will only cost £10 to attend which will be used by WSSP to cover the costs of hosting the event (including the refreshments provided) as well as going towards covering the costs of future work in the country. We ask all of you to register your place via the following website or by contacting us if you need any help/clarification. Places are limited and we encourage all of you to register your place early.

When arriving for the conference, please aim to arrive between 16:30-16:50 so that we can start on time and finish on time. Any late arrivals may be refused entry at the discretion of the security staff at the University and to help things run smoothly we encourage you all to start your journeys early so you can arrive on time. We look forward to seeing you all there.
