Our History

February 12, 2013 in Uncategorized by admin

The Somali Bantu were enslaved in Somali for 400 years until the outbreak of the Somali civil war in the 1991 forced them to flee to neighboring Kenya. For more that ten years, the Somali Bantu lived in refugee camps where food, water, and adequate shelter were scare. In 2003, the United States government identified them as a particularly disadvantaged ethnic group and offered permanent resettlement in the United States.
On March 5th 2004 Omar Abdulkadir Eno Director of Somali Bantu projects and Daniel J Vanlahman Deputy director of Somali Bantu projects came to us and encouraged us to open an office for the Somali Bantu Community of San Diego.
