4H Norway, a Norwegian charity organisation, recently embarked on an annual weeklong visit to their projects being implemented in The Gambia through a sister Gambian organisation, 4H Gambia.

The weeklong engagement was characterised by field visits and meetings with different local communities, as well as the national board of directors meeting on various issues including the organsation’s 2016 action plan.

Officials said the visits are crucial in strengthening cooperation between 4H Norway and club members, to enhanced good governance, transparency and accountability.

Speaking at the meeting in Farafenni in North Bank Region, Tor Martin Stenseng, team leader of 4H Norway, said there has been a high level of cooperation between the two sister organisations since 1987.

He said their interventions at grassroots level have contributed in improving lives and livelihood of the people.

Alieu Ceesay, national coordinator 4H Gambia, commended 4H Norway for their continued support and cooperation in improving the lives of rural youths.

He said 4H Gambia has established 4H clubs at six lower basic schools in North Bank Region and Central River Region; three in each region.

Mr Ceesay said they are committed to good governance and accountability for resources.
