Amoud Foundation impacts the local and global communities by helping people help themselves through sustainable humanitarian projects while maintaining trusting relationships.
How It All Started
One Saturday afternoon in 1998, a group of concerned Somalis got together in Irving, Texas, to start organization to rebuild their homeland which had been devastated after the civil war in Somalia.
Beginning with a meager $500 in the bank, these dedicated volunteers help propel a small education and development organization into an international humanitarian organization that today serves several countries across the world spanning 4 continents (Africa, Asia, North America, South America).
Amoud also does work on the homefront including helping with the 2006 Hurricane Relief and 2015 Garland Tornado recovery. An active and uncompensated board volunteer team keeps administrative costs at a minimum.
