Gambia Horticultural Enterprise (GHE) and the European Union funded Youth
Empowerment Project (YEP) have recently provided start-up kits to 22 young
entrepreneurs who were trained on agro-processing, agro-marketing and pest.
“The need for such training programmes for the youth was demonstrated by the overwhelming number of applicants from all over Gambia,” GHE managing director Momodou Ceesay said.
He reminded the young entrepreneurs that the skills learnt from the training should be maximally applied to the best of their abilities and to share with those who were not opportune to be part of the training. “This is a life changing opportunity and all of you must ensure making the best use of,” Mr. Ceesay told the beneficiaries and promised to continue supporting them.
Representative of the YEP Modou Touray said irregular migration is always attached to financial problem, saying they appreciates the partnership with GHE to create lucrative avenues in which the youth of the nation can find something to do.
