The Schools are Displaced
It is not only the people of Somalia who are displaced. Schools often move from site to site, as Mogadishu’s conflict flows throughout the city, rendering classrooms once filled with the sound of children void through the fear of incoming shells.
Here, children at Wil-Wal school wait for lessons at a temporary site in Shangani district. The previous site of the school was closed as fighting approached, also displacing many of the families who lived nearby. The school committee is currently looking for a more permanent site for the school, and currently share an area with many several displaced families.
