the FREEPRESS UNLIMITED officials during June 2016.
The FREEPRESS officials were consisted of three: Leon Van, the Team leader of Media development
programme., Jens Kiesheyer, who is the Programme coordinator Fragile Africa and Abdi Asis Muse who
is the Somaliland representative of Mediac . On the counterpart, SOLJA representative were the
Executive Director, Yahye Mohamed and the programmes coordinator, Liiban Abdi.
In addition, It was my privilege to discuss further about current Media landscape in Somaliland. SOLJA
activities, specific needs, Vision, successful interventions we have achieved and also our future
endeavor. After this impressive introduction we have moved to the agenda of the meeting which was
how to build a collaboration with FREEPRESS unlimited and Somaliland Journalists Association (SOLJA).
We are very proud to FREEPRESS for giving a cordial attention to our requests for partnership and future
collaboration for media development aims in Somaliland. We have agreed to start with a pilot project
which lasts as shorter as possible and after accomplishing this task we will start the real projects for
media development issues in Somaliland. Though, time was short but its outcome was extremely
impressive as we believe. This will in return be a beacon of hope for all journalists in Somaliland.
Once again let me say “Thank you for visiting our Headquarter, we will realize you expectation due to
our commitments and hard work individuals”
