At the end of 2016, The Gambia went through a peaceful democratic transition. This instilled renewed hope among  the Gambian population, accompanied by determination  of the new government to create better opportunities for Gambian youth.

In partnership with the European Union, the International Trade Centre (ITC) was among the first international development partners to engage with the new government.

ITC’s Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) supports the creation  of quality jobs at home by addressing skill gaps and identifying market opportunities for youth.
