Tekki Fii Programme at a glance
Tukki wala tekki fii? Tekki Fii! Go abroad or make it here? Make it here! The Tekki Fii campaign is a movement by Gambians, for Gambians. It’s about helping young people in the country to see the benefits of choosing to ‘make it’ at home rather than risk all that they have to seek opportunities in Europe through irregular migration. Through this campaign, the government is working with the business community, youth groups and development partners to show young people – especially those most vulnerable to migration – that they can not only survive but thrive in The Gambia. The Tekki Fii campaign is coordinated by the Government of The Gambia through the Office of the Vice President and technically supported by the International Trade Centre’s Youth Empowerment Project (YEP).
