Case Study

Gambian youth business training & Mentorship

THE CHALLENGE

In the Gambia, youth exit school early or do not pursue post-secondary education for a host of reasons, one being the lack of affordability of post-secondary education or other financial challenges (school fees, cost of books, etc.)

THE INNOVATION

Over the course of the 8-week program, 18 Gambian youth were engaged in 4 entrepreneurship and business training sessions and 4 mentorship sessions. Led by a total of 14 skilled volunteers (10 mentors and 4 trainers) from 6 of V2I’s corporate partners
