Bolong Youth Development Association in conjunction with the Environmental
Concern Group-Gunjur and Gunjur Village Development Committee recently embarked
on massive relocation of dump sites in Gunjur.
Kambie Bolong Youth Development Association (KYDA) based in Gunjur was formed to empower youths within their community, and to engage them in development-oriented activities like cleansing of the environment, tree-planting, education and the like.
The association also sensitises youths on issues affecting their lives through radio talk shows and forums.
The secretary general of the KYDA, Babucar Camara, said the association has a good vision and is very committed to attaining their goals, which is to change the negative attitude of the youths of their community, and to engage them in development programmes so that they could be empowered.
