The Gambia - Sankung

La Gambie
A hardworking young man, Sankung currently has his own vehicle electrical wiring workshop with two young boys under his apprenticeship. He is an excellent public speaker.
Sankung traveled to Libya in 2013 due to peer pressure and family struggles. While in Libya, he worked at a company as an electrician. Upon returning to The Gambia, he opted to work as a taxi driver and has now also opened his own electrical wiring workshop. Sankung believes it is a moral obligation to share his stories with potential migrants to make informed decisions.

Returned migrants play a central role as Volunteers in the development, planning and implementation of the Migrants as Messengers campaign.

Through their stories, the learnings from their migratory experiences and their creativity, MaM Volunteers are the principal authors and actors of the campaign. From 2019-2022, a community of more than 300 volunteers across 7 countries will develop and grow. This community will also have access to diversified training and capacity-building opportunities and be invited to regular activities to support the development of an organic and sustainable community. Female engagement plays an important role within the MaM Volunteer community as they will take the lead in shaping women-to-women dialogue sessions and engaging female audiences more generally.
