The Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS) in partnership with the National Enterprise Development Initiative (NEDI) on Saturday commenced a five day training and coaching on business development for returnees.

According to the Ministry of Youth and Sports website, the training which is currently ongoing in Brikamaba, Central River Region is supported by IMVF.

The training brought together 16 returnees from the Central and Upper River Region to build their capacity on business development.

The participants would be exposed to business concepts, business management and leadership, entity concept in business, record keeping and financial management as well as marketing and market research among others.

The Ministry responsible for Youth and Sports development in the country outlined that they are committed to fulfilling the objectives of the National Development Plan (2018-2021), with the slogan “leave no youth behind”.

“We are committed to fulfilling the objectives of the National Development Plan (2018-2021), by “leave no youth behind”, as it recognises that youth are the engine of growth and will be the essential pillar for any development that The Gambia aims to achieve,” MOYS said.

According to the ministry, NEDI has over the years trained thousands of potential and existing youth and women entrepreneurs most of whom are doing remarkably well in their different enterprises.

“NEDI has built a strong partnership with other government agencies and EU structures such as YEP and GIZ to implement training on entrepreneurship and related value chain areas for youth and women in the country.”
