The Fajara Skills Development Centre in The Gambia was set up in 1999 and is now ready to expand its links with other non-governmental organizations in The Gambia and the pool of candidates/youth who form its clientele.
The vision of FSDC is to increase the current scope of the centre by running courses, which would meet the needs of these youth. The main avenue for youths to break out of the poverty trap is to increase their employment prospects by providing them with skills to embark on a trade for income generation.
The Fajara Skills Development Centre also seeks to address some social problems of the youth in addressing the low self-esteem evident in some students when they first arrive at the center. Some of them are products of circumstances of real poverty, broken homes who have not had exposure to life outside their immediate environment. At the FSDC, they will be encouraged to form relationships, learn the techniques of coping with stress and prepare to compete for success in the world.
We cater for women, homemakers and those who could not be absorbed into the formal education and employment sectors due to situations beyond their control, our course is structured towards practical skills to enable everyone to earn an income for sustainability.
You are welcome to FSDC
