At Arc Solutions, our Somali employees working in Mogadishu are an essential component of our work. They not only know the culture well, but can navigate security issues that take place in areas of conflict. It is a challenge to have our members of our team in the states and others in Somalia, but it is important to us to empower the local people. They are the ones who assess what is working or not working and are our eyes & ears on the ground. Our Somali team members are our most valuable asset.
