Scores of Gambian activists including young people converged at the American Corner last week for a day-long ‘youth to youth’ dialogue on issues underpinning activism and youth development in The Gambia.
They were supported by the Banjul Breweries company, and topics such as education, sports, youths, environment, girls, representation, health, media, law and others were discussed.
Artist Killer Ace, who spoke on behalf of ‘street youths’, called for greater attention to their plight. He said these youths are who made Gambia what it is today.

Speaker after speaker all spoke different areas, and one Pa Barrow said on sports: “We have some fine footballers but the problem in The Gambia is poor management, which continues to affect many of our young stars who eventually opt to ply their trade elsewhere. This should change.”
Various youth-led organisations took part in the interactive discussions.
