Turkey hosts largest Somali University Student population outside East Africa

My cousin went to a free 8 month Quran boarding school run by Turks in Gaalkacyo some years ago. The school was meant for poor orphans but it was complete crap. The suras were taught in random order like a bunch of Spongebob episodes and the students were fed disgusting Turkish slop. The teachers would also host evening fights between the students for entertainment.
:mjlol:
The students were not allowed to leave until they graduated. They made sure that no one left by constructing high walls around the compound.
:faysalwtf:
So why would anyone go to this school? Graduates got to study Quran in Turkey for free where conditions were a million times better. So parents were lining up to send their kids through this 8 month boot camp.

The best thing about this is that we will get Somalis returning with doctorates who can teach in our universities. Right now, most schools are missing some basic subjects due to what I assume is a lack of qualified instructors.

Even if most of these students don't come back, it only takes a few to make a difference.

Inshallah, Somalia will retake its place as the centre of knowledge in East Africa once again.

The large and positive impact will be felt in the coming years, inshaAllah.
 
Sending people from Somalia to university is a waste of time. Majority are illiterate and ignorant of even basic social and scientific facts.

Somalis need mass public education camps that teach everything from basic literacy to basic history and science. Basic social norms would not hurt either (dont spit in public, stand in line, use deodorant, how to wear a tie)...

These kids all graduated from dusty madrassa high schools where a mullah with stinky breath taught them nothing but to chant quran and a few uncontexulaized hadiths. How can they possibly be ready for university ?
