Mohamed Shueb is an activist of better change of community impact. He has tried to empower local people by creating websites, volunteer recruitment, publicity, live social media talks, created websites, to implement from scratch a project called Save Life and Hope for Youth development through which he successfully influenced mainly young people, children, women, business owners to participate to donate blood and help each other. He is also the co-founder of Plant Hope plant trees that planted more than 20,000 plants and spreads 10 cities in the horn of Africa, Hope for Youth Development in Kisa, Sweden to integrate the locals support sustainable development goals and youth empowerment. Currently, he is the Manager, Media and Advocacy for Somali women in global health.
The need for a WGH Chapter in Somalia grew out of a frustration for the lack of representation of women in Somalia's health leadership positions. Women comprise more than 75% of the health workforce yet occupy approximately less than 10% of leadership positions at local, state and national levels as well as in INGOs and government bodies.
The need to join the movement was in order to illuminate and celebrate the diverse Somali women working in global health and the larger health sector. WGH Somalia saw the need to shed light on their crucial contributions to the re-building of the health systems. Hence, WGH Somalia introduces the first African WGH list of women in global health - below are the list of 50 women who are leading the gender equality in global health movement in Somalia. Both of these projects where so little but a huge change to educate people to help themselves for life beauty. Now it is 4 years gone, 8000 blood donors, 500 volunteers are in place with a vision I had but put in action.
