Gambia: EC, Partners Visit Brikama Waste Innovation Centre

A delegation from the European Union and European Commission and officials of Concern Universal Country Office last Friday visited the Waste Innovation Centre in Brikama. The occasion was also graced by ward councilors, senior staff of the Brikama Area Council, Women Initiative Gambia (WIG) and officials from The Global Climate Change Alliance Livelihood. The centre, located at the Brikama Area Council Annex, is part of a four-month pilot project funded by the European Union, Waste-Aid and Concern Universal, in partnership with the Brikama Area Council and Women Initiative Gambia (WIG). It primarily focuses on recycling waste, turning it into useful items. Speaking at the centre, Mam Sait Jallow, Chief Executive Officer of Brikama Area Council, applauded the team for the visit and welcomed them to his region on behalf of the Governor. Jallow estimated that the area generates 200 metric tons of waste per-day, noting that the project has huge potentials in ensuring effective waste management. He informed the officials that the project has contributed a lot in reducing the amount of waste generated in the area; and is creating employment opportunities thus deterring young people from endangering their lives in the high seas in search of greener pastures in Europe.
