Federation, in collaboration with ChildFund The Gambia, recently organised a
two-day training for 120 children to increase their resilience and coping
The training was organised in view of the fact that children and young adolescents face adversity as they grow up hence the importance of them to be able to cope with life challenges effectively.
Saamasang programme officer in Dalasimeh community, Ebrima Janni, said the training targets youth of no more than 24 years old and 95 per cent are students.
He said Saamasang has been organising similar trainings for youth in West Coast Region.
Mr Janni said the participants of the two-day training were trained for skills and capacity that would help them in planning their future.
Tida Jajusey, a Saamasang-sponsored student, commended the federation for “the wonderful efforts” towards helping children, especially in terms of education.
