YJAG to hold mega fundraising dancehall show with DJ Pisces

The Young Journalists Association of The Gambia (YJAG) is to hold a mega dancehall musical show with one of the most renowned DJs in the country, DJ Pisces on 27 April 2013 at Romana in Bakau.

The fundraising is meant to gather more funds for the association to embark on more capacity building programmes for its members, the young journalists, for them to become responsible journalists in order to contribute their quota to national development of The Gambia.

Lamin Jahateh, secretary general of YJAG, reiterated that proceeds from the programme will also be used to implement a line-up of activities which the association is to hold but could not due to the perennial problem of lack of fund.

"The worthy goals of the association cannot be achieved without funds,” Jahateh noted, adding:  “This is why it is imperative that we devise ways and means of raising the much needed funds.  It is in cognizance of this that the forthcoming programme is being organized.”

Nyima Jadama, public relations officer of the association, called on everyone to attend the show saying “this show will be one in town”.  Ticket for programme is only D50, she added. 

The president of the association, Modou S. Joof, said all the journalists particularly YJAG members are encouraged to attend “as the proceeds will be use for the collective good of all”.

YJAG president called on the general public to patronize the association and support the young journalists to achieve their objectives.

YJAG embarked on its first ever successful fundraising show in July 2011 at the Buffer Zone in Tallinding with the popular Senegalese drummer Sheikh Faal and his Group.

YJAG is an independent non-profit making organization and it is legally registered with the Attorney General’s Chamber in September 2007.   

YJAG has members from both the print and electronic media houses nationwide.  The objectives of the association include promoting unity among young journalists in The Gambia, providing capacity building, and addressing the welfare of its members.
