Gambia - Girls Skills Training Program - Exam Day!
Updated: Jun 19, 2022
The 21st & 22nd May 2022 was exam day for the 23 girls participating in our skill training program. On the 28th & 29th May some had the chance to redo certain parts of the exam to rectify their mistakes.
We would like to congratulate 19 girls passing the exam. Unfortunately, four didn’t pass this time, so they have been offered the opportunity to participate in the course again.
The girls graduation program will happen on the 25th June. It has been scheduled for a Saturday so that more people who work in government positions and private institutions will be able to attend, as weekdays are rather busy for them.
All these institutions are potential partners in terms of giving loans/grants to the girls to start up their own business. Our plan is to show them what we are doing, where we can stop and where we need their support as young citizens of the country trying to contribute to the socioeconomic situation of our country.
