  1. ASC to every Somali out there. Peace and prosperity to Somalia throughout inshallah. 1People 1Nation under Allah(swt) let's all do our part to build our homeland whether it maybe big or small. Let's take baby steps and inshallah we will get there one day. Wa alaykum wa Salam.

  2. I agree, the translations was way off, at times completely wrong. That being said, the initiative made by the organisation to make and produce this video and raise awareness for the ongoing struggles of the Somali youth were for the right reasons and I applaud them. God bless

  3. To UNDP: The translations from Somali to English contain vast amount of errors. An organization like the UNDP should most certainly ensure that works presented are credible and have the utmost validity. I think the translator(s) being used to translate this segment have not went over their script to check for mistakes and ensure proper production. This in part, can be due to the complacency of the UNDP or the lack of regulation. I hope these words are taken into careful consideration by the UNDP

  4. what the hell the girl in the red hijab didnt say any of the stuff in the translation… everything she said was positive not all the craziness about there is no government and blah blah blah! Regardless SOMALIA HAA NOLATO!

  5. You are those arabized somalian. well suppoert your people don't put them down. everything happens for a reason. Somalia shall raise again! its just the matter of time.

  6. Somalians are your muslim brothers, you are suposed to say: Insha Allah, God willing, this program shall make it. not: this program will go from no where to no where" these people almost lost their country, you're suposed to be incouraging, not negative. you're a hater, i think.

  7. Just what the Somalis need, more hegemonical interference from the U.N.

    Here's hoping the Statists and Islamists eventually fade away and the Somali people can live free in pursuit of their own interests and not that of some authoritative entity.
