Our mission

smilingwomenThe mission of Finnish Somali League is to act as a capable umbrella organization of Somali associations based in Finland.

As an umbrella organization the League has unique and invaluable insight to the the lives of Somali minority in Finland. The League represents them in  a variety of national and international bodies and networks. The League is also actively engaged in advocacy and consultancy in collaboration with Finnish  authorities.

The League promotes Somali culture in Finland, supports Finnish Somali population in their efforts to integrate into their new host society and seeks to generate and maintain mutual understanding.

For its members the League offers guidance and help with what ever problems and challenges they face. Special emphasis is on supporting education and assisting in finding employment. Finnish language classes are also regularly offered.

Since the protracted humanitarian crisis of Somalia rarely makes the news in Finland anymore, the League follows the situation providing media updates on the situation, both here on the website and through the social media channels.

As part of the League’s communications strategy, we have also established an active presence in social media to compliment our work. We can be found on TwitterFacebook, Instagram and YouTube.
