Qalinkaa wax suureeya,
Kugu sima halkaad doonto,

Sunto fara ku hayntiisa,

Redsea Cultural Foundation
Fidiyaha Aqoonta iyo Ereyga Dhigan

.. our main target is to value and to preserve Somali traditional human-created wisdom (literature, indigenous science, traditional games, language and all other forms of art of human expression) in the form of the written word.
Jama Musse Jama, President.

Welcome to Redsea Online Culture Foundation
Redsea-Online is a cultural foundation based in Italy and in Somaliland which promotes the culture of reading and creative writing in Somali speaking society, with particular focus on youth. In addition, we support and promote Information and Communication Technology for development within the Somaliland society. We promote and distribute high quality Somali literature contents (essays, history, fiction, science, poetry and drama); and provide young people with access to the cultures of the world by translating international renowned classical literature (including fiction, poetry and drama) into Somali. Our main target is to value and to preserve Somali traditional human-created wisdom (literature, indigenous science, traditional games, language and all other forms of art of human expression) in the form of the written word. Somalis are traditionally an oral society, and their culture is profoundly animated by the spoken word, and the highest art of Somali Culture is poetry, which is a literary form produced for performance.

Our aim
We aim to assist the development and availability of literacy and IT in Somaliland as a fundamental objective. In line with this aim, we support local libraries, educational institutions and books shops in Somaliland by publishing books and distributing to these libraries. Redsea-Online strives to promote access to the libraries among the civil societies and encourages the setting up of library facilities in schools, higher educationís institutions, local governments and any other institutions.

Mission statement:
We are focused on promoting the culture of creative writing and reading; publishing quality books and magazines for Somali speaking people and to facilitate and help Somaliland youth organisations, readers clubs and youth in general to integrate among themselves, to promote literature to young people and to the wider society.
