The Foundation aims to provide technical skills training and enterprise development opportunities to improve basic living standard in the rural communities. This initiative will stimulate youth and out of school leavers to take up skill , enterprise and apprenticeship training as a viable opportunity of minimising unemployement rate in the country. The foundation is a joint collaborative effort by the Gambia Technical Institute (GTTI ) and Regional Training Centre ( ROC ) as our main counterpart in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The over arching goal is to support government's policy in promoting decentralisation of service industries to attract young talented youth of gender mix to take up industrial skills and enterprise development opportunities at their doorsteps. The whole development initiative seeks to minimise mass exodus of young energetic youth from rural areas to urban centres for a better life.
