The “Make it in The Gambia – Tekki Fii” is a 3-year programme that aims to improve economic development and future prospects for The Gambia’s youth, including returning and/or potential migrants by promoting attractive employment and income opportunities, and to support the Government in its attempt to nurture perception shift for the Gambian population moving away from a ‘future through migration’ to a ‘future in The New Gambia’. The project is funded by the EUTF and is implemented by GIZ International Services, The Instituto Marquês de Valle Flôr (IMVF), Enabel, and ITC. The action complements and builds on existing projects funded by the European Union in The Gambia, and specifically initiatives supported by the EUTF including The Gambia Youth Empowerment Project implemented by ITC and the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration implemented by the IOM.
