Welcoming the second batch, GYIN Gambia Executive Director Mamadou Edrisa Njie, thanked GLEN for recognising his office as a partner in the exchange programme. The posting of three interns, he said will increase the strength of GYIN Gambia in its efforts to add value to the lives of young people especially in rural Gambia with special attention on entrepreneurship ecosystem.

He recalled that the partnership between GLEN and GYIN Gambia began in 2018 which followed the deployment of two interns in the names of Paulina Kowalke from Poland and Tim Tolle from Germany.

“This programme gives our interns memorable experiences in interacting with different communities in all GYIN intervention sites in the country,’’ he said.
