The first leg of the tour which took the delegation to twelve communities in the rural Gambia accorded them the opportunity to acquire a better understanding of the development needs of the communities, interact with them and also to meet their project beneficiaries.
Speaking at various meetings during the tour, Mr Jawneh thanked the communities for the warm welcome accorded to him and his delegation.
“Our vision is to become one of the most vibrant civil society organisations in the region and country as a whole. I am highly committed to working closely with the grassroots communities in addressing your developmental needs. I am a patriotic citizen who has the interest of Wuli at heart and the country as a whole,” he said.
For his part, Beakanyang board chairman, Yahya Sumareh, reminded the communities that they could not achieve sustainable development without taking the lead themselves, while assuring them of the organisation’s “relentless commitment in working with them”.
Beakanyang, he said, is a brain child of the people of Wuli and should be appreciated as such.
Beakanyang president Mori Conteh urged members of the organisation and affiliate chapters to pay their contributions on time for the sustenance of their activities.
Alkalo Ebrima Touray of Chamoi Bunda, Ansumana Makalo of Kutay Jumbul Kafo of Jah Kunda, Bakary Drammeh of Draman, Mori Keba Barrow of Barrow Kunda and Alhaji Lamin Camara of Madina Koto all thanked the Wuli-based organisation for spearing development efforts in the region.
