Although the intense humanitarian crises in Somalia require urgent attention and concerned stakeholders have been funding such challenges for a long time, it is paramount to monitor and evaluate such assistance for maximum benefit to the Somali people. Individual initiatives not coordinated between humanitarian organizations make projects overlap one another and hard to trace achieved progress. Ultimately, it leads to marginal output, waste of resources, and misappropriation of donated funds. For humanitarian institutions to have a maximum outcome of their support to the Somali people, they must plan together and combine efforts to achieve a specific goal. Such an approach will make it possible to track humanitarian progress in the country and determine what form of assistance will be required later. FinnSom Society is well established in Somalia and monitors and; evaluates projects by Somalis living in Finland and institutions from the rest of the world to ensure Somali people maximumly benefit.
