The documents are a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and a Contractual Agreement that seeks to support youth in the area of entrepreneurship through a three months mentorship programme.
Under the MoU and the Contractual Agreement, both institutions committed themselves in supporting rural developments through a mentorship programme that will promote entrepreneurship in rural areas.
Twenty-five rural youth will undergo the three month mentorship programme of which fifteen males and ten females have already been selected for the programme which will commence in the first week of August, 2017..
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Executive Director of GYIN Gambia, Ambassador Mamadou Edrisa Njie, said that there is great need to support youth especially those in the rural areas in the areas of entrepreneurship mentorship.
“My office is aware of the lack of mentorship that many rural youth lacks, therefore, we’re piloting this programme to fill the gap and we hope that the programme will become a bigger one,” he said.
