You are hereby informed of the emergence of the Gambia Youths for Unity (GYU) in the Gambian civil platform as a structured pressure group with the mission to bring diaspora organizations under one unified group and engaging youth on the ground for greater civic participation.
GYU’s vision is to engage all groups in the diaspora, to influence a process that will usher one unified body responsible for coordinating, monitoring and evaluating the affairs of the struggle. We are convinced that such a platform will empower all the organizations and young people to be more proactive in restoring democracy in The Gambia.
GYU yearns for a Gambia where every voice is heard despite political and/or social status. GYU will therefore pursue its primary mission of unity by reaching out and collaborating with the Gambian organizations engaged in the struggle for the restoration of democracy and the rule of law in our motherland. GYU believes it is our duty and responsibility to respect our differences but stand together to strive for a common goal.
Temporary members of the GYU are driven from the United States, United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, and Africa with structures in each of the blocks to facilitate coordination and implementation of activities that will positively impact the lives of all Gambians. GYU pleads with all Gambians and all those who believe in freedom, the rule of law and respect for humanity to join us and stand for UNITY.
