Movers and Shakers of The Gambia @ Hall A

By International Organisation of Migration (IOM Gambia) and International Trade Centre/Youth Empowerment Project (YEP Gambia).

Now more than ever, stakeholders around the continent are coming together to address youth unemployment and combat irregular migration. In this critical period, we must be able to showcase to the youth that #TekkiFii is possible—succeeding at home without having to resort to irregular migratory routes.

This side event will be an exhibit featuring seven “movers and shakers” of The Gambia—beneficiaries of the International Organization for Migration (IOM)’s reintegration support for returning migrants and the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP)’s entrepreneurship and skills training programs. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear the testimonies of these seven inspiring individuals, who have bravely overcome their own hardships and struggles. Find out what they have gone through, what they are up to now, and discover the potential sectors for growth in Africa. With a one-of-a-kind side event, we are giving our Gambian youth a voice to tell their stories to the rest of the continent.
