The President’s International Award - The Gambia (PIA) was created by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. PIA works with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in the UK.
PIA offers technical and behavioural training for men and women. There are courses in the following fields, for example:
- electrical installation and maintenance
- fashion design
- tailoring and dressmaking
PIA has training facilities in Kerewan in the North Bank Region. These facilities often already have the necessary equipment and resources. This means that if you train as a tailor or dressmaker, for example, you will be able to use the sewing machines on site.
Returnees can also complete training here.
You will have to pay a fee for the training. Please call on the phone or send an email if you would like more information.
