ORGANISATION IN SOMALILAND AND PUNTLAND
FairFishing Somaliland was established in January 2013 as an international NGO in Somaliland, and registered as required by law with the Ministry of National Planning and Development. It is in charge of running the FairFishing station on a daily basis: Managing and hiring employees in a transparent manner, handling and recruiting partners, fish processing etc. We are currently (January 2017) establishing an office in Bosaso, Puntland, to facilitate the activities in Puntland for our EU funded program “LOT2” 2016-2018. We are in an initial phase of the program where we employ staff for both Berbera and Bosaso offices for management and implementation.
The NGO FairFishing board consists of hands-on practitioners from the worlds of shipping, development, Somali diaspora, business strategy, finance, navy, education and fishery.
We are not a business and do not profit financially from our efforts.
We are financed by Danish and international donors who support our practical ‘nuts and bolts’ approach to a complex area and issue. We have received generous donations in the form of capital, manpower, equipment and service. Volunteerism is our backbone.
