Kawsu Sillah is the national coordinator at the Gambian-German Advisory Centre for Jobs, Training and Reintegration (GGAC). In an interview, he talks about the centre’s work.
Who do you and your team advise?
We advise people who’re thinking about returning to The Gambia as well as the local population, in other words people who’re already here. Young people without a job, refugees and people who are internally displaced are also very welcome. Our services are free of charge.
How do you support these people who ask for your advice?
My team and I provide wide ranging advice. Some people come to the GGAC because they’re looking for a job. We also give them advice on how to start their own business. We give them the latest information about our programme – our free training opportunities or professional development courses. The services that we offer are customised to individual needs and help them with their social and economic reintegration.
