Rohey Malick Lowe, the Lady mayoress of Banjul City Council (BCC) has unveiled a laudable initiative meant to support 500, 000 Gambian women to have access to national documents.

Mayoress Lowe who doubles as the President of Rafela International Gambia Chapter unveiled this in Jarra Soma during a convergence organised by Rafela.

The initiative, she added, is meant to support Gambian women who find it difficult to access ID cards due to financial constraints among others.

According to her, the initiative is to support 500K Gambian women who have all the required documents to get a National ID card but cannot afford the cost attached. She also dwelled on the importance of women having the National ID Card which can help them to acquire their voters’ card and other important National documents to be used as identification in many other transactions like in business/commercial transactions.  

She further urged the women of The Gambia to prepare their required documents and contact their Local Administrative Authorities for onward processing of their National ID cards as soon as possible. 

“One of the main aims of this initiative is to encourage the women of The Gambia to go out in their numbers to exercise their voting rights.”

Rafela, she added, will be in contact with the local government authorities for onward processing and all costs will be paid directly to the Department of Immigration.
