PREVENT COMMUNITY DETERIORATION
The primary purpose of Tasho is to prevent community deterioration. The metropolitan Twin Cities area has become the home of a sizable community of individuals and families who have arrived here from East Africa, particularly Somalia. Somalia itself has experienced considerable violence and deterioration in the past many years, which has torn at the fabric of community there. Tasho is an organization of people within this community who are determined to use the opportunity that a fresh start in a new country provides to heal the community, and to preserve and strengthen the connections between people – to preserve the very best of us all.
