Abstract: The purpose of the study was to establish the impact of Turkish aid projects on the Infrastructural development of Mogadishu, Somalia. The study objectives were to examine the nature of Turkish aid in Somalia, to assess the performance of Turkish aid on infrastructural development in Mogadishu Somalia and to evaluate the benefit of Turkish aid projects in Mogadishu Somalia. The study was conducted using Mogadishu city employees and Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) as the study respondents. The study employed both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Data was collected from respondents using research questionnaires and interview guide questions, while the study adopted a sequential strategy in data gathering. In this case, qualitative data was first gathered and analyzed and then preceded by quantitative data. In addition, the study employed a descriptive research design. Furthermore, the study was guided by the Supplemental Theory of development aid. The theory emphasizes that economically weak states require foreign aid or assistance to supplement their limited savings if they must achieve growth and development. Thus, aid is a necessary evil for growth and development in struggling/ weak states. The overall findings of the study indicate that Turkish aid projects have significantly improved infrastructural development in Mogadishu, particularly in the area of healthcare, education and transportation. However, the study believes that more needs to be done, particularly in diversifying aid projects to other parts of Somalia.
