Somali leaders lack any sense of creativity. Every country, region and even cities have a civilian award that goes to an outstanding member of the civil society. We all know the troublemakers, but it's time to recognise our hidden heroes. The purpose of this thread is to familiarise ourselves with those that contributed to 'an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the Somali people, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors''.

For the Puntland region I'll nominate the following:

1. Abdirahman Cabdulle Cismaan 'Shuuke'- Former minister of education before the war and the founder of Puntland Development Research Center (PDRC).


PDRC is perhaps the most important partner of the Puntland government. They are involved in the area's of peace-keeping, good governance, policy review and exploration of development options. Almost every important meeting in Puntland is held in their headquarters.

1. Dr. Abdulqadir Mahamud Jama 'Dhega Cadde'. MD and Surgeon


Dr. Dhega Cadde is an accomplished medical doctor with a history of philanthropy and public service. He is the guardian of Galkayo Medical Center (GMC), the second largest referral point for treatment of Fistula and all FGM related complications in East Africa after Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa. There are many doctors, but what makes him special is that he doesn't charge more than 100 dollars regardless of the treatment. He has received many international award for his work.

3. Hawa Adan Mohamed. the founder of the Galkayo Education Centre for Peace and Development (GECPD) in Galkayo. She is the wife of PDRC founder


Hawa Adan is an educator, peace and human rights activist.

GECPD conducts awareness raising development initiatives and education training for women and girls in three towns and five villages in the Mudug province of Puntland. Its local areas of operation include Galkayo, Galdogob and Jariban, as well as Beyra, Baacad Weyn, Bali Busle, Bur Sallah and Harfo.

The organization provides formal primary education for young girls and second chance education for older girls, serving a total of 781 girls between the ages of 8 to 18. In addition, it offers crocheting, tie and dye, tailoring and other skills training services, as well as capacity building, teacher-training and awareness raising programs on governance, human rights, peace, democracy and environmental issues. GECPD also offers integrated adult literacy programs for women

She has received several international awards among which Amnesty International.

Mudane Ali Kaleyr: An Intellectual who saw the blight of its people and the light of its Country Somaliland, and seeing its enemies of the East for what they are Spoilers, an man who shares the same goal and destiny of his compatriots Somaliland.

I didn't even have to look far as they're all Cumar Maxamud. A laangaab mooryaan like you can't even assemble three righteous people from your clan that had an exceptional contribution to society.
