PRESS RELEASE: YJAG fundraising dancehall show with DJ Pisces successful

PRESS RELEASE: YJAG fundraising dancehall show with DJ Pisces successful

The fundraising musical show of the Young Journalists Association of The Gambia (YJAG) with DJ Pisces on 27 April at Romana in Bakau was a successful one.

The people of Bakau and the environs came en-mass to patronize and support the young media practitioners.

Nyima Jadama, the public relations officer of the association, thanked all those who came out to patronise the association in its quest to raise fund to be able to implement some of its impending programmes.

Ms Jadama also thanked DJ Pisces and his One Force Alliance for helping the young journalists to raise fund. 
“We cannot thank him enough for his generosity for accepting to play for the association almost on gratis,” she said.

The fundraising was meant to gather more funds for the association to embark on more capacity building programmes for its members, the young journalists, for them to become responsible journalists in order to contribute meaningfully to national development.

Proceeds from the programme will also be used to implement a line-up of activities which the association is to hold but could not due to the perennial problem of lack of fund.

YJAG is an independent non-profit making organization and it is legally registered with the Attorney General’s Chamber in September 2007.   

YJAG has members from both the print and electronic media houses nationwide.  The objectives of the association include promoting unity among young journalists in The Gambia, providing capacity building, and addressing the welfare of its members.
