The eruption of civil war in 1988 and the subsequent collapse of the central state in 1991 severely disrupted all public social services in Somalia. The education system in Somalia was entirely destroyed. Prolonged periods of instability and intermittent conflict constrained the ability of local populations and the international community to rehabilitate the country’s educational facilities and resources.
Destruction of the sector went far beyond the deterioration of physical infrastructure. It is estimated that more than 80% of the educated elite left the country in the period since the conflict began. This extended period of insecurity and instability has robbed a generation of young Somali men and women the chance to attend formal education. Somalia now suffers from one of the lowest literacy rates in the world.
