Mo Farah was born in Somaliland on March 23, 1983. He lost his father in a civil war when he was four years old and later lost contact with his mother and father both. He disclosed that he was forcibly transported to the UK through Djibouti during a BBC documentary. Hussein Abdi Kahin, his birth name, was changed to Mohammed Farah as a result of this occurrence. He worked as a domestic worker after moving to the UK. Farah kept this portion of his life private until July 2022. He received his British citizenship in July 2000 under his present name Mohammed Farah.

At the age of around eleven or twelve, he began attending Year 7 at Feltham Community College. His athletic ability was spotted over there by physical education instructor Alan Watkinson.  Afterwards, Farah joined the Borough of Hounslow Athletics Club situated in West London. In the under-13 division, he competed for Hounslow in cross-country at the 1994 London Youth Games.  When he was 13 years old, he competed in the 1996 English Schools Cross-Country Championships.  He won the first of five English school titles the following year.
