Oftentimes we never see, or even know about the results of our good deeds. A wise farmer once shared this thought with his son on graduation day: “The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”

We may not get personal benefits from the trees we plant, but we can take sweet solace in the certainty that they will shade and shelter generations we will never know, but with whom we will forever be connected.



By the end of June, 2017, Burao Academy of Science and Technology will have completed its first school-year. By all accounts it’s shaping up as an exceptional year.  See Progress Tab. The school continues to expand to accommodate a growing student body. New dorms, classrooms, additional faculty quarters and other facilities are to be built. Furniture, IT hardware/software, and other school equipment are to be purchased. And more teachers are to be hired. 


To prepare the school for its 2nd academic year, we need to raise $200,000 to build additional dormitories (for boys and girls), classrooms (for middle school) and faculty housing. We are very appreciative of the support we have received so far from Friends of Burao Academy like you and we hope that you will be able to make a generous contribution.

Please note that 100% of your donation will be spent to construct these buildings: Click on the site plan to view.
