How do I start a non-profit organization in Africa? Contact Mohamed Ahmed, CEO and Co-founder of CURE Africa.
CURE AFRICA (which stands for Communities United Reviving East Africa) was founded in 2011, alongside Yousef Abraham, a fellow alum from San Diego State University, as a famine relief in Somalia. But now, through the course of four years, it has transformed into one of the most successful non-profit organizations in San Diego and Somalia. Its mission is to mobilize the East African community and end famine in the Horn of Africa. It has facilitated awareness programs on campuses like San Diego State University, California State University-Long Beach, University of Minnesota, etc. and has raised $30,000 in donations to build an elementary school in Somalia.
Born in Mogadishu, Somalia Mohamed Ahmed moved to San Diego as a refugee in 1995. Mohamed graduated from Crawford High School (School of Law & Business) and then studied International Security and Conflict Resolution at San Diego State University in 2013 where he obtained his Bachelors of Arts and Sciences and also awarded ISCORIAN of the year award for his great achievements and contribution to the arena of International Security. Mohamed was also one of four selected American participants at the Hansen Institute on International Leadership and Cooperation where he worked with over twenty participants from conflict and developing countries and regions of the world on leadership and cooperation in 2013 at the University of San Diego.
