What did the Somali Revolutionary Government achieve for Somalia? Within three years President Mohamed Siad Barre achieved goals that took the previous government forever to decide on. #Somalia #Mogadishu #Garowe #Hargeisa #Borama ##Kismayo #Burco
President Mohamed Siad Barre put in effect the choice of a script for the national language which is still regarded as the greatest achievement in the Somali history. A massive literacy campaign titled Bar ama Baro Teach or Learn was put in place. #Somalia #Mogadishu
Bar ama Baro campaign where a large amount civil servants numbering up to 40,000 students were sent to the countryside to educate the nomads in literacy and by 1977 more than 70% of the Somali population had passed literacy tests. #Somalia #Mogadishu #Kismayo #Hargeisa
Bar ama Baro results had astonished the World and an achievement that was viewed by United Nations as one of the most successful mass urban literacy campaign ever recorded in world history. Effective campaigns were kick started to eradicate corruption, laziness, and cleanliness.
Additionally self help schemes and crash programmes played an important part in the life of the Somalis after the revolution. They ranged from sand dune stabilization to tree plantings. Every capable Somali had to contribute as much as 7 hours per week. #Somalia
7-hours-per-week of their spare time to construct government designed projects such as roads, hotels, office buildings, schools and housing.Industry, banks and businesses were nationalized. Former President Mohamed Side Barre did more for somalia than anyone else in Somalia.
