Carpenter solicits support to open skills centre in CRR

He said provision of a skills centre in Bansang would go a long way towards addressing the seemingly intractable challenge of illegal migration to Europe.

Janneh, 40, told The Standard that he has taught many youth in his community in carpentry. 

“I have this desire to help the young people, especially the ones in my area. I have taught a lot of young people and today most of them are sustaining themselves through carpentry. I have the will to help. What I do not have is help. I have seen a lot of young people, especially from our area, who after completing school, sit at home doing nothing. Some of them want a job, but they find few opportunities. My aim is to help expose such children to carpentry and broaden their knowledge.

He added: “What I need is someone or organisation to help me turn this idea into reality; to help me with carpentry materials. Nothing will please me more. Although I have never asked for help from the government, I hope this one works. The president is an open man when it comes to youth in The Gambia. Building a skills centre is just like complementing government’s development efforts.”
