The CEO of Star GSM, a mobile company in the country, is planning to establish a training centre to help develop young people’s knowledge on satellite and CCTV camera for free.
“I’m just waiting on the government to give me license to kick-start my project in March 2018, where 100 young Gambians will be trained on computer, mobile operation, among others,” Lamin Kaba Jaiteh said.
He made these revelations during his company’s promotion and awarding of certificates to security officers and various media houses at the Westfield monument recently.
The event also witnessed presentation of cash amount of D30,000 to the Talinding ‘KaambengKafo’, a women’s group.
CEO Jaiteh said his aim is to tackle youth unemployment, hence the need for such initiatives.
He added: “Women and youth development and empowerment is my top priority, and I enjoin youths to be committed in nation building.”
Meanwhile, assistant police PRO, Foday Conta heaped praise on Mr Jaiteh for contributing “immensely” to the development of women, youths and particularly the security force.
He advised him to remain resolute in his resolve to better lives and support women.
“If you empower a woman, you empower the nation because if women are empowered, they help in the upbringing of their children.”
He urged other business moguls to emulate Mr Jaiteh, “so that we can have the Gambia we are all yearning for.”
Star GSM since its formation in 2010, has helped create employment opportunities for several women groups and young people and has now embarked on life-changing projects in crusade to help develop The Gambia and her people.
