P2RS trainees speak out, say their skills have been upgraded

Rural women and youth participants have praised and thanked the project dubbed ‘Building Resilience against Food Insecurity in the Sahel (P2RS)’ for organising training programmes on business planning and management of income generating activities in their respective regions.

The P2RS trainings were conducted in Upper River, Central River and Lower River regions for rural women and youth to upgrade their skills on entrepreneurship, including business planning writing.

The three-phase training ended at Jenoi, Lower River Region, where participants from NBR and LRR gathered to improve their skills.

Kawsu Sonko, a member of Global Youth Innovation Network Gambia Chapter (GYIN Gambia NBR), described the training as very educative and instrumental, saying he learnt a lot of skills beneficial to him as a young entrepreneur.

According to Sonko, the training has also availed him the opportunity to network with other youth thereby growing his business scope.
