Today we went to visit the YEP in Bakau, the Youth Empowerment Project. It’s an EU funded programme to educate, train, and offer opportunities to young people in The Gambia.
My first impressions of Gunjur? Where do I start? I suppose you have to start with how different it is. The culture shock. But actually, it’s been really quite easy to fit in. And it’s the scenery, the whole culture, everything.
That’s what we found out today. Seeing how the local people live their lives, how they get on with their days. It’s like: this is how they live, and it’s how we’re going to live for the next two weeks. That’s exciting, and it makes me nervous too. Intrigued.
