Gambia: Beakanyang trains on women's political participation


Rights advocacy organisation Beakanyang Kafo has trained and sensitised over one hundred women in the Upper and Central River Regions on the importance of political participation.

The activities were held in the two regions’ administrative capitals Basse and Janjangbureh in partnership with International Republican Institute with funding from the United States Embassy in Banjul.

Gambians will go to the pools tomorrow to elect their councilors who will represent them in local area councils which will be followed by Councils’ chairman elections and Mayors. The trainings also seek to instill aptitudes in women to make informed choices and decisions during elections and to increase public awareness on women contribution in politics.
