Information campaign in Jijiga
The 17th of December SAGAL had the pleasure of holding an information campaign in Jigjiga. Hundreds of people attended our meeting to get more knowledge about various problems they face in the community or the environment they live in. It was a successful meeting with several speaker and debates. There was a good atmosphere and a great enthusiasm among those present.
SAGAL have noticed that more and more people participate in our campaigns we have in Ogaden. This is highly appreciated from our side and we hope to see as many people next time.
