I always thought this is the best way to go too. Many people want to set up free schools, orphanage etc but are in dilemma with regards to funding and sustaining the project. Setting up business will not only allow the sustainability of the projects but will employ people. It really is the way to go to make a difference.Somalis are not that repsonsive to social activism , everything has a clan angle.
Why not create a vehicle for social activism , development and education.
a sort of business but pooling profits into a sadaqa jaariya.
Example a livestock trading business but the shareholder is a waqf and profits are used to fund an orphanage, or a clinic or a school?
or building a marketplace and the rent goes into the same projects.
the success of such ventures will make somalis want to copy you, they are very good at copying.
If you tel them to do something they wont like your preaching.
