Think Young Women is working in partnership with UNICEF in The Gambia to explore creative means of ending the practice of FGM and Child Marriage in the country. Today, we commence a two-day #TYWArtvocacy training on FGM and Child Marriages with 9 Gambian musicians and 1 young poet.
TYW has explored artvocacy as a means of influencing positive change, and we are glad to expand this engagement to reach more Gambian artists and draw them into the work we do. Their art has the power to reach people across all platforms, breaking all barriers to share transformative messages to end all harmful practices against girls and women.
We’re happy that these artists have answered this call, through the coordination of Brand Plus, and are excited to spend the next two days learning and exploring new creative and innovative ways of message sharing. We can’t wait to see the magic they create.
Many thanks to Lamin Darboe and the Gambia National Youth Council for the consistent support to our work at TYW.
Our gratitude to UNICEF The Gambia for supporting this project, and walking with us on our journey to inspire sustainable and lasting change, for the benefit of all girls and women in The Gambia.
