As we prepare for our 2nd training of student leaders. This year 25% of the participants are going to be teachers who will be accompanying their students.

The biggest challenge facing our education system is lack of leadership and one way to address that we decided to increase teacher student participation.

For students to be able to visualise the future they want their teachers should be able to guide and advise them.

In our past trainings we only had 10% teacher representation.

Amadou A. Bah the President of the Gambia Cyber Security Alliance said the internet is the most unsecure platform you can share information on because someone somewhere can intercept it. So he advice participants to avoid sharing something that will hunt them and their unborn generation.

'If you put something abusive in the internet someone may save it and can use it against you or even your unborn children', added Amadou our co-founder.

It was the turn of students from Jarra Bureng and Kiang Kwinella on the ongoing student leadership and entrepreneurship training.

During the sessions the students had the opportunity to engage Assistant Superintendent Mariama Barry who is currently in Darfur, Sudan with the United Nations.

The participants had the opportunity to learn from ASP Mariama Barry's life and professional story.

During the Q&A session one question stood out.
Female Participant: ASP Mariama do women in the security force face harassment and if yes how is the security authorities trying to address it?

ASP Mariama: Yes, many women working with men often face harassment in their work place and the security is not an exception. Recently, we have been working to develop policies to help create a safe environment for women in the security sector in the Gambia.

Even after the session the students wanted to ask more questions. Thank you ASP Mariama Barry our participants were so inspired and thrilled with your amazing presentation.

Our Story

Balal Public Library Ayuba Suleiman Diallo Education Center, was formed in January, 2011, as a public library operating in The Gambia. It is open to all without distinction of race, gender, origin and religion. It is aimed at advocating and creating awareness on issues affecting societies. Balal Public Library also creates platform for discussing some of the negative issues affecting societies and create awareness of those negative consequences.

Education, as the backbone of the organization, helps the initiative on awareness creation, through educational support activities and skills development. This is also embedded into our strategic document; thereby encouraging self-employment opportunities, to minimize illegal migration.

ICTs are a proven and effective tool to promote social and human development in many communities and remote regions. It’s also a means of communication with members of the community that have left in search of a better life in the cities or even in other countries. These technologies can be used in diverse ways to promote culture, access information, promote the protection of their rights, start educational processes, and even make them more careful with their way of life and their environment.

Over the past decade, there has been a growing understanding that these technologies can be powerful instruments for advancing economic and social development through the creation of new types of economic activity, employment opportunities, improvements in health-care delivery and other services, and the enhancement of networking, participation and advocacy within society. ICT also have the potential to improve interaction between societies fostering transparency and accountability in communities, civil society organization governance just to name a few. This is why Balal Public Library is ready to take a lead in the rural center to promote access to such facilities and lobby for the rural communities to make them available and improve the quality of service of existing ones.
