We have made many Gambian friends and a few years ago we were there at the time when the festival of Tobaski was celebrated. This festival is to commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his own son in the name of Allah.
It’s always a real treat to get some news ‘from the front line’ as it were, and over the next couple of months we’re lucky to be able to feature a series of guest posts from Rhiannon Lewis. Rhiannon is living in the Brufut area for the next 3 months, working at the Lemon Creek Hotel and also taking on some volunteering work. It’ll be great to see how she progresses and what she learns about the Gambian way of life as she goes. Over to you, Rhiannon!

Poca TV visited The Gambia in the summer of 2009 and followed young Gambians as they made their way in the business world. This short film is the result.
