Leaders may need training in both soft and hard skills, depending on an individual’s current challenges.

Kidney disease is a long- term condition where the kidney is damaged and cannot perform it’s normal function. Considering the fact that kidney disease is now a significant public health issue in The Gambia and is a major source of suffering and poor quality of life for those afflicted, the American Corner hosted a roundtable discussion to sensitize people on this health condition.
Girl Talk series:

The human skin is more important than just it's appearance. If you take care of it, it will take care of you health wise.

Also by just washing your hair doesn’t necessarily mean you are sure you’ve done it right, hair care also involves proper grooming and making sure you are using the right hair care products. Join us at American Corner on Tuesday 26th, and learn how to take care of your skin and hair.
Yesterday at the American Corner, upper basic school students were invited to a creative recycling event to to contribute our quota to protecting the environment by recycling plastic spoons, sticks, CDs, gift bags, and papers to create beautiful pieces. Recycling is beautiful♻️. You must not throw away all of your waste. Some items can still be reused to create wonderful artefacts. Let's protect our environment through recycling.

#Icanrecycle
#youcanrecycle
#wecanrecycle

Let's recycle to make a difference!
Majority of waste generated each year ends up in the landfills or open dumpsites. These do not only have a bad impact on our environment but also degrade the beauty of cities and towns. By recycling already used items in our homes and surrounding environment, we can play a small but huge part in protecting the environment and regaining the glory of our cities.

Join us at the American Corner this Saturday as we recycle commonly disposed off items to contribute our quota to protecting the environment.

FYI: for kids only
The American Corner Debate Championship has kicked off today. A total number of 6 Senior Secondary Schools have competed against each other on different topics of national interest. Debating is another form of learning process as it prepares the future generations to be great advocates of societal prosperity.

“This year our theme celebrates all kinds of progress - big or small - and the strength we demonstrate when we don’t let fear hold us back from following our dreams.

So often we hold ourselves to impossibly high standards and feel disappointed when we can’t reach them - or worse, we don’t even try. When we let the idea of being perfect go, we allow ourselves the space and freedom to try new things, to make mistakes and to learn. We see that all of our experiences - the good, the bad, and the ugly - have made us who we are today. Instead of striving for perfection, we can strive for growth and discovery. Instead of being fixated on the destination, we enjoy the journey, wherever it takes us.

Our paths aren’t always linear, and we may come across seemingly impossible challenges, but when we celebrate , we are celebrating all we’ve accomplished - big and small - and our inner strength and resilience that allowed us to get here”.

Join us as we celebrate International women’s day with Women Techmakers Banjul.

Topic: Role of a mentor in Career development
