Gambia: 4H Clocks 25

Nbr — 4H The Gambia, a local non-governmental organisation based in Farafenni, and affiliated to 4H Norway, on Friday celebrated its 25 years of existence in The Gambia. Visiting delegates from Norway and the community attended the celebration, which took place at Farafenni in the North Bank Region (NBR).

Speaking at the occasion, Alieu Ceesay, 4H national coordinator, lauded the efforts of 4H Norway for their outstanding contribution to the development of youths in the region. Their 25 years of existence, he said has contributed immensely in enhancing the capacity of youths on income generation activities, with a view to contributing to the socio-economic development of the country. Ceesay thanked the beneficiary communities in the North Bank and Central River Region for their support and cooperation.

Bakary Dibba, the chairperson of 4H Gambia board of directors, underscored the importance the organisation attached in strengthening and building youth development. He praised 4H Norway for the recent study tour organised for the Gambian delegates, noting that it has accorded them the opportunity to learn and share best practices on youth development.

Hary Heggelureh from Norway expressed delight to the management and staff of 4H for their commitment towards the improvement of the organisation.

Musa Samura, a board member and Musa Chaw, cluster committee member for Sami in CRR north, echoed similar sentiments, calling on the youth to make best use of the opportunity provided by 4H.
