UK (ssctimes.com) Degmo is a Centre For Somali Heritage and Rural Life, it encourages Somali youngsters to be proud of their culture and heritage, it shows Children born or brought up in the UK how their forth fathers or the real Somali life in village like setting. Degmo is often visited by groups of Somali Children across the UK, the tents resemble Somali ‘Aqal’ or house and at the same time it teaches Children about the Somali history. The centre is trying to show a positive side of Somalia, not the one promoted by the media, which is obsessed with ‘Pirates’ and the ‘Shabaab’ which they themselves created not the Somali people.
