Kulan Somali Organisation

The message that drives our work!

Kulan Somali Organisation (KSO) is a registered UK charity with the aim to improve the lives of the Somali community in the UK. KSO is rooted in the Somali traditional saying of 'Gacmo wadajir bay wax ku qabtaan' which is translated as ' United effort leads to success'. This motivating message underlines the spirit in which the KSO team delivers its work. In short, we care to make a positive difference in the community we work with and we understand the importance of the community working together in a united effort to create lasting improvements and changes.

 

Our Team

 

The KSO team is based in Westminster and is made of our three trustees and

addition volunteers. We are a small team but our commitment goes a long way in ensuring

that we meet as much of the community needs as we can.

As a small charity KSO appreciates the positive role volunteers have played in ensuring that

we continue to support the Somali community. We had outreach volunteers who delivered

support by providing community information and linking to specialist services on issues such

as benefits, homelessness and employment. Recently in 2015 our volunteers supported the

KSO chair in the delivery of our first funded project as a new team: the Somali Youth

Employment Support Project (SYESP) funded by the London Community Foundation.
