MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) The British Embassy in Somalia hosted an event in honor of its Somalia Chevening Alumni at the British Embassy Mogadishu, the embassy said in a statement.

UK’s Deputy Ambassador to Somalia, Mary Shockledge spoke at length on the importance of having the Chevening Alumni network and thanked the guests, some of who included senior Somali Goverment official for attending, the statement released by the embassy said.

Present during the event were Somalia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Mahdi Gulled ‘Khadar’, and Director General for National Intelligence Security Agency (NISA), Abdullahi Mohamed ‘Sanbaloshe’ who are both Chevening alumni’s.

"The Chevening Scholarship was a dream come true for me. An incredible adventure and journey crowned by having the opportunity to study and gain knowledge in acclaimed, premier institutions in the UK” said DPM Sambalooshe, who gained a Master's degree in the UK.

"It’s always satisfying to see scholars come back to their home country and make massive contributions to move their country forward, ” said Ms Shockledge in the press release  adding that « the Chevening scholarship is a key part of the Embassy’s work to further deepen ties between the UK and Somalia as well as building bridges between our two cultures.”

Now in its 34th year, Chevening Scholarships are the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The scholarships support study in UK universities – mostly one year Master’s degrees – for individuals with demonstrable potential to become future leaders, decision-makers, and opinion formers.

The event was co-hosted with DFID Somalia as It launched the second phase of the Girl Education Challenge Somalia chapter.
