Iftiin was founded by a group of young Somalis located across the globe and seeks to mobilize Somali youth and professionals to take action to make a difference in their communities and promote peace and development. We seek to catalyze change by connecting professionals, students and communities within the global Somali Diaspora. Our goal is to establish a diverse network of Somalia Diaspora leaders, from students to young and established professionals. The word Iftiin means "light" in Somali and we hope that our members will serve as leaders and be a light for their communities.
