Dear ETS, Dear US Embassy Mogadishu,

The Somali students are facing insurmountable challenges in applying education opportunities that require them a proof of TOEFL certificate. A Somali student must travel to neighbouring countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda, who require Somalis to have an entry Visa (Ethiopia is a recent exception). Coordinating entry visa and TOEFL test dates are quite challenging. It happened to me that my Kenyan visa was not issued in time for the test date; of course I could not take it and lost my test fees.

It is also too costly for the few who make it. Each Somali student also faces travel, accommodation and food costs. My TOEFL fees plus other costs were around 600 USD, excluding one refund charge and one test fee loss.

Many students cannot to apply to the UK Chevening Scholarship, German DAAD scholarship and many others because they are already restrained by the TOEFL requirement, which is costly and mainly far.

We (Somali students) directly need a TOEFL centre in Mogadishu, Hargeisa or Garowe. we believe that security allows the opening of such centres at least in Hargeisa and Garowe. Somalia now hosts many international companies and institutions and there is large Somali community in the US,UK Canada and Australia that come along  TOEFL Centres to offer training and teaching.

Please consider this petition.

Regards,

On behalf of the Somali scholars,students and elites.
