At Waada Xaajood, We embody the essence of peaceful dialogue and the spirit of open discussion.
It is universally known and widely acknowledged that dialogue promotes better understanding and encourages more creative cooperation among people with differing opinions. It naturally bridges the cultural, social, and economical divides between opposing factions that otherwise will not relate to each other’s experiences. This process helps reduce misunderstandings, fosters cooperation& collaboration, and helps ensure more inclusive interaction in the future. Dialogue and discussion are the foundation upon which healthy relationship are built on and impactful awareness are raised in. Those two pillars give credence and voice to issues that are not commonly discussed in the public discourse.
Waada Xaajood’s objective is to address the most critical social and economic issues facing Somalis both back home as well as abroad. We intend to utilize user generated discussion and expert opinions to formulate consensus and to enhance knowledge and understanding about challenges and opportunities for the Somali community. We aim to provide a platform where a transformative dialogue can occur.
Through our debates/discussions, Panellist and active participants exchange ideas on varying topics that are often not in the Somali public discourse. We welcome disagreements and the presentation of opposing views as we believe this is the only way to finding constructive solutions to less publicized concerns. This platform is not concerned with winning debates or convincing the masses on our specific point of view. However, we are wholeheartedly interested in informing the public about facts, concepts, feelings, and experiences of all Somalis that are not often discussed in traditional media platforms.
We welcome you to join us in this journey of fact finding and solution seeking. Listening to each other’s concern and appreciating our individual input is a sign of growth and maturity. Together, InShaa Allah we can elevate our public discourse around sensitive topics so we may harness the most good out of our collective effort. Speaking to each other whilst agreeing to disagree is the first step in acknowledging our commonality in the quest of a better tomorrow for all vulnerable Somalis.
