“Edrissa Drammeh, a member of the Jenoi Youth Development Association said, this is a great gift because the community finds it difficult to participate in the District competition because of football kits. The intervention of Tijan will also motivate more young people in their community to play football.

“No one can underestimate the love of football among young Gambians’ but football is also very expensive for many who couldn’t afford football shoes and jerseys.”
