The Gambia has been selected as the latest destination in the European Commission’s Face2Hearts campaign. This leg of the campaign will see a new vlogging duo, Fatou and Guillaume, embarking on an epic adventure to discover how the EU and partners are changing lives for the better in The Gambia.

Fatou Muloshi is a reporter and anchor for The Gambia radio and television service, while Guillaume is a travel filmmaker from Belgium. They are both excited to embark on this journey of discovery and to give you a unique Belgian-Gambian take on the stories that they encounter.

During their trip, the courageous duo will visit a number of projects where the EU and partners are working together to create a brighter future for the country’s youth.

In total, the vloggers will visit 8 EU-funded projects to see how they have affected the lives of local communities by creating employment for young people and returning migrants, strengthening human rights, promoting sustainable agriculture, implementing school nutrition programmes, and much, much more.

Faces2Heart is a global campaign, which takes 20 international vloggers to some of the most remote places in Africa, Asia and Latin America to cover EU development projects that are changing people’s lives for the better. Last year, the campaign reached over 30 million people across the globe.

Faces2Hearts is organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development, which aims to help end poverty and create a safer, fairer and more prosperous world for all.
