Youths in the Move for Change (YMC), a non-profit association established in April 2011, is set to visit their Senegalese counterparts, Jeune Pour L’emergence de Thiarakole in Senegal Foundiougne.
The association in recent years is committed to providing youths the platform to make positive changes in their lives, thereby contributing their quota to national development.
This was disclosed at a recent press briefing held at the Sanchaba Primary School in Sanchaba.
Abdoulie Gaye, the president of YMC, highlighted the significance of the forthcoming visit, adding that the visit will provide the two associations the platform to undertake classes in Senegalese as well as provide the youth the opportunity to come together under one umbrella.
This, he added, will further bolster unity between the two countries.
Gaye however added that the association in recent years has registered tremendous achievements, which includes assisting the Sanchaba community and conducting different trainings.
“But we still want to achieve more in our bid to contribute to national development. YMC is full of potentials and talented youths who are ready to partake in strengthening unity between The Gambia and Senegal, as the popular adage states; united we stand, divided we shall fall.” he noted.
During the visit, he added, the association will visit important places in the Senegal, pointing out that conferences will also be held.
This he added, will also create an avenue for the different associations in Senegal to interact with the members of YMC.
“The Gambia is all we got and as citizens is good to represent our country in a positive manner and achieve the best for the country.” he stated.
Gaye urged other organisations to emulate YMC in their bid to strengthen peace and unity between the two countries.
He thus appealed for assistance from individuals that can help the association move forward.
