Illegal immigration is high in The Gambia. Lot of youths trying to reach Europe in any possible way. The Swallow wants to encourage the kids and the youths to stay in The Gambia and to contribute to develop the country.
It is a topic frequently spoken about in various lessons, and sometimes in special activities. There was a one week camp, for example, about ‘no to the backway’ with various discussions, witnesses and alternative opportunities for the youths to get involved in the future of The Gambia.
There is more youth work like this, about important topics. At least twice a year we organize a big one-week-project.
