For more than a decade, Tusmo Consulting has been helping local and international organizations make positive changes in environments of East Africa. We deliver great results through meticulous research, analysis, and consulting.


Tusmo Research and Consulting is a Somali-owned firm registered in Somaliland, Puntland, South-Central Somalia, and Ethiopia. Across the region, Tusmo maintains a network of 75+ Somali researchers, with experience in conducting complex qualitative and quantitative research programs, as well as a roster of 250+ Enumerators. They have access and experience in all FMS. 

 In 2020, Tusmo took steps to formally register its operations in South West State and Jubaland State and is in the process of opening sub-offices in Kismayo and Baidoa to be able to better service projects in those cities. These sub-offices will be important given the focus of the World Bank’s projects in those locations.

Tusmo has offices in Mogadishu, Garowe, Hargeisa, Addis Ababa, and now counts 40+ permanent staff who manage the operations and the delivery of services to client organizations.

Tusmo Consultants are hired based not only on their experience and capacity, but also on their intimate knowledge of their areas of assignment and trust developed over time. Tusmo staff have supported numerous sensitive research and monitoring and evaluation assignments in the fields of economic development, governance, security, conflict analysis, displacement, health and education. Tusmo has conducted some of its most ambitious fieldwork with the World Bank, including the water infrastructure study for the Water and Sanitation Team, which took the Tusmo teams into very remote areas mapping water tables and infrastructure with local communities.

Tusmo also maintains partnerships with local universities and other research institutes, such as the Gollis University in Hargeisa, the Academy for Peace and Development in Somaliland and Puntland and the Mogadishu University in Mogadishu and Bossaso. The firm also developed strong ties with local NGOs across Somalia to gain easier access and up-to-date information on local dynamics.

In 2019, Tusmo expanded its operations by creating one of Somalia’s first call centers, located in Hargeisa with a secondary call center in Mogadishu. This call center is used extensively for conducting survey work (including the World Bank’s Covid-19 household and enterprise impact survey, which is ongoing), and has access to a substantial database of around 200,000 numbers, as well as random number generation capabilities, to be able to conduct quantitative phone-based research across all population groups (nomads, IDPs, urban, rural, etc.).
