The United Somali Republic (USR) originated in 1991 amid the collapse of the Somali Republic and the ensuing civil war. Initially founded in Mogadishu with a branch in Abu Dhabi, UAE, this organization effectively operated and gained recognition from the United Nations during the civil war. The UN provided crucial assistance to USR members. The USR encompassed clans such as Madhiban, Tumal, Yibir/Anas, Muse Dhariyo, Hawleh, Yaxar, and Reer Wardheere, collectively known as Gabooye or Baidari. However, challenges arose in recruiting members during an era when internet usage was minimal, causing the USR to lose momentum. In 2023, a resurgence occurred as Western youth embraced the movement, revitalizing it with a renewed purpose. The revitalized movement sought to address the plight of the Gabooye people, whose history had been neglected, and who had silently struggled for too long.
We are dedicated to reshaping the way Gabooye people are treated and addressing the neglect they have endured. Our mission revolves around transforming Somalia into a place where Gabooye individuals can enjoy their rightful rights, access quality education, and find employment opportunities. Regrettably, Gabooye people have long been denied these basic privileges, leaving them particularly vulnerable, displaced, and without a support system. Our mission is to provide the much-needed support to these Gabooye communities, helping them regain their stability and offering a reliable shoulder for them to lean on as they strive for a better life.
Our vision is to provide Gabooye people with access to essential resources, opportunities, and rights, enabling their community to flourish and grow. We are dedicated to creating an environment where Gabooye individuals can thrive, access quality education, secure meaningful employment, and lead lives of empowerment and dignity. Our goal is to support their journey toward self-sufficiency and the growth of their community.
