At least twelve 4H board members recently attended a two-day workshop on management and record keeping. It was held at Jarumeh Koto Village in CRR North.

Speaking at the gathering, the Board Chairman, Mr. Bala Musa Keita, said that the workshop aimed to equip and prepare the board members with management and record keeping skills. He stated that the workshop was sponsored by 4H The Gambia. He then urged the participants to make good use of the training, as this would have a positive impact on their roles and responsibilities as leaders in their various regions.

For his part the 4H Programme Director, Mr. Momadou Secka said that by the year 2009 the Norwegian donors will be leaving and that they are now putting up a mechanism to sustain 4H The Gambia projects. According to him they are also looking at other areas where they can have income generating activities to provide funds for the association.

Mr. Secka further revealed that the reason for targeting the board members is because they are responsible for gathering funds for the projects. Mr. Secka then urged the participants to organise other training for the club members at a local level so that they can also gain knowledge and skills in management and record keeping. He then commended the Norges Vel and their counterparts 4H in Norway for their support during the past few years.

Fatoumata Komma, the Field Assistant at Niamina East gave the closing remarks.
