On Thursday, our friends at TeachPitch had an extremely interesting guest over to EdSpace: Edna Adan, former Foreign Minister of Somaliland.
It’s fair to say she’s making waves, having recently been praised in a speech by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon for her work supporting the eradication of FGM. We asked her what her key message to the education community based in Europe is and this is what she said: “Tell people education is the way forward. I am trying to give people a way forward with education. Tell people there is one crazy lady in Somaliland trying to put a stop to terrorism with education”.
