Career Prospects for Returnees

Sabach Sukoto, Gambia

In relation to its Population, Gambia has the highest emigration rate in sub-Saharan Africa.

Since the repatriation agreement between the EU, IOM and Gambia in July 2018 however, many migrants have been repatriated. In their home country, the youth unemployment is almost 40% and, as a result, a high degree of hopelessness and Frustration can be seen. A return to their families out of fear and shame is often not an option for them. The Gambian youth Project has made it its Goal to give the lives of those affected a new direction and the prospect of a better future.
