ABSTRACT

The study on the "Telecommunication Companies and Socio-Economic Development" was carried out in Punta land State of Somalia, with specific aims of; examining the role of telecommunication company; in improving people's standard of living; creation of employment and in improvement of health and education. A review of related literature was carried out on already existing information on the specific aims of this study as a way of comprehending the problem and enriching and supplementing the study findings. This was through quantitative and qualitative research designs under which questionnaires and interviews were administered to a sample of 100 respondents who were both randomly and purposively selected. It was established that, the telecommunication company has improved people's standards of living through; improving business performances, cementing relationships, promoting research, improving market opportunities, creation of awareness among others. The Telecommunication company has also created jobs by; recruiting on merit, building capacities of the young people, direct and indirect job creation and developing ICT. While in the health and education sectors, the company has paved way for; Corporate social responsibility; enabled on-line courses; provided scholarships construction of schools and health centers, among others. The study concluded that, although the company has created employment avenues, it should avoid duplication of roles and focus on economically sustaining jobs and by playing a corporate social responsibility role, companies should take initiative to raise awareness on shortfalls of the systems and develop a policy of crime detection. The study recommends; opening more lines for telecommunication for wider outreach; inclusive programmes; develop an implementation base linked to local problems; demonstrate transform procedures for the education and health sectors among others.
