GAMBIA: THIS IS MY LAST REACTION; I WOULD LIKE TO FOCUS ON POSITIVE THINGS- PA OUSMAN JOOF

866

Pa Nderry,  I will really  like to be focus on the positive things I am doing for my community both in The Gambia and the US and I hope this will be the last time I make any further comment on this issue.

In a nutshell, there’s no money to be made from this internship. Period.  There’s no single sponsor for the program despite the fact that I knocked and continue to knock on all doors.  This is a project I am very passionate about because it is providing skills training and employment opportunities for several young people and I am calling on all Gambians and friends of The Gambia and the entire humanity to support it.  We are touching the lives of the young people of The Gambia in a very positive way. That office is run 100% by youths under 30 and i guide them to make all the decisions.

I remind you again that our beneficiaries are school dropouts, “backway” returnees, high school graduates who don’t have the basic requirements to pursue higher education or students of the university of The Gambia and other tertiary institution who don’t have the practical skills or experience in any of the fields we are offering.  I am proud to tell you that we have changed a lot of lives and will continue to do so by the grace of God with or without support but we will appreciate any genuine support from anyone.

And yes, we do have a code of conduct and policy document that is signed by all our staff and interns on their day of orientation.  This policy is based on best practices followed by all serious institutions and I can tell you that anybody who passes through this office in Gambia and follows our standards,  you can work anywhere in the world. All interns must sign an internship agreement,  a presenter and blogger agreement (for  journalists only),  a model release form,  a policy and procedures document and their time table.  Both the contract and the policy document have some of these clauses that you referenced and all interns including Balajo signed  them. You can ask her to provide you with a copy of all documents she was provided with on the day of her orientation.

For the water part, there’s no obligation on us to provide that to them sir.

This document has the answers to the allegations you raised sir and I HOPE YOU DO JUSTICE TO YOUR AUDIENCE BY QUOTING ME RIGHT OR INCLUDING MY ENTIRE RESPONSE INCLUDING THE DOCUMENT I SENT YOU?
