En hjälparbetare i Gambia
Genom sitt arbete i United Purpose använder Sainey Looms den utbildning i development studies som AforA hjälpt honom med för att bidra till landets utveckling. United Purposes hjälper det fattigaste jordbrukarna att förbättra jordbruk. Sainey kommer själv från en familj som försörjer sig på jordbruk. Han skriver i december 2018 till oss:
My family is coping well, currently on the harvesting period of the past rainy season. I do visit whenever am opportune to, most often on the heat period of farming activities, to give an extra human resource so as to ease work load, was there few days during the harvesting of the groundnut and pearl millet, which are the two most grown crop in my community.
My current desire is to be on the contemporary issues for now, for exposure and experience, so that will be able to strike a balance between concepts learned and its practicality in the real world. I will be scouting for opportunities too, to work on masters degree program and possibly PHD on development related courses.
My greeting and best regard to yourself and all the AforA family. Thanks for letting me be part of the family. sincerely grateful to you all.
