Each year, a group of very impressive teenagers arrives in the U.S. from the Abaarso School of Science and Technology in Somaliland. The PAX Means Peace Scholarship program places Abaarso exchange students with host families across the U.S..

The Abaarso School has an international reputation for academic excellence. PAX Means Peace students bring an enthusiasm for learning and sharing their home culture with their host communities. Like all exchange students, their stories explore similarities and differences, homesickness, the joys of connecting with their host families, and much more.
