In 2012, after two decades of devastating civil war, Somalia established the Federal Government heralding the start of a new political and socio-economic chapter in its chequered history. The Somalia Federal Parliament was inaugurated in Mogadishu, followed in September with Somali Parliamentarians selecting Hassan Sheikh Mohamud as the country’s President. One of the first tasks for the new administration was to set out a vision for the recovery and development of a country battered by war and inter-clan rivalry in a ‘Six Pillar’ development plan. The Somalia New Deal Compact was endorsed on 16 September 2013 by the Federal Government and the international community, pledged support to enable its implementation and re-commit to the Somali political process. The Compact presents specific priorities drawn from the Six Pillar Programme of the FGS. In it, the Somalis and the international community agreed on the most important priorities in five areas - the Peacebuilding and State building Goals (PSGs). Under PSG 5, Education remains one of the priorities of the Federal Government.
