The Somalian Culture-House was started in 2002 on the initiative of, among others Haali Farah Hassan, who heads the women's group. The main focus of the Somali Culture, are women and children, but there are also a few men who comprise a men’s club.
The women's group is led by Haali Farah and a board of three active members. The group has more than 100 members, and attendance at events tends to be 50 or more participants. In 2005-2006 the women's group borrowed a kindergarten to hold weekly meetings, and ran a number of activities such as sewing lessons and training on women's rights. Currently, the group has a voluntary center at Grønland and does not have the capacity to continue with such activities, with the exception of seminars and courses.
In the summer of 2009 the group received funding from the Children, Youth and Family Directorate to initiate courses on Female Genital Mutilation, and on forced marriages.
