Cheerful girls - Somaliland

Hargeisa, Somaliland. declared its independence in 1991 after years of civil war with Mogadishu. Though boasting one of East Africa's fastest growing economies, the country remains unrecognised internationally with no representation in any global bodies. Though receiving virtually no foreign aid, the country has experienced rapid reconstruction thanks to investment from its diaspora in the Middle East and elsewhere.
