CASA GAMBIA
General Chairman

Ebrima Jatta

My Name is Ebrima Jatta,
– Chairman – Community Action Support Association. CASA-Gambia was founded in 2015 with the aim of bring development to the Gambian people, particularly the deprived through advocacy and capacity building. I am particularly interested in personal and national development because of serious lack of pragmatic capacity of youth development and community in the Gambia. Evidently, my Master of Business Administration and BSc (Hons) Business Information Systems would serve as a spring board for upward mobility and evidently self – actualization. With this qualification in the bay, I can be in an influential position to affect decision making to better the living condition of my countrymen hailing from a disadvantaged background. My heart has always been with the underprivileged members of society. The realization of this goal will be the most fulfilling achievement in my life.

It’s a privilege to be part of such an institution to help humanity especially women and children to prosper in this generation of ours and to help them unlock their potentials and achieve their goals.
