We have connected with the people in our community, Nema Kunka, but would like to connect and network with a similar organization in the United States,” says Baobab Youth Development Association (BYDA) president Buba Camara.

The Baobab Youth Development Association’s 72 members live in Nema Kunka, an economically-challenged community, south of Banjul, the capital city of The Gambia, West Africa.

I initially reached out to Alhasan Bah after reading about him and his interest on a listing of Mandela Fellows.
