The most recent Gambia-EU Cooperation Newsletter featured the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) in one of its three articles. This edition covered the visit of the EU Special Representative to The Gambia, Mr. Stavros Lambrinidis; the visit of the EU Director and Deputy Managing Director for Africa to EU Project sites in The Gambia; and finally, an article about an EU-funded project on "Post-crisis response to food and nutrition insecurity".

YEP was one of the projects visited by the EU Director and Deputy Managing Director for Africa. In the newsletter, it reads:

"The second project, “Youth Empowerment Project (YEP)” in the Banjul region, provides technical and entrepreneurial training to unemployed young men and women, including returned migrants, with the aim of facilitating their insertion in the labour market. The informal, short-term and hands-on approach as well as the focus on skills in high demand (satellite TV and solar panels installation and repair) is proving very successful."

You can read the full newsletter in this link: The Gambia-EU Cooperation News 2017 October November.
