Speaking about the training, the trainer, Lamin Darboe of the Jenoi Agriculture Training Centre, affirmed that the training has offered the women relevant knowledge on gardening techniques and expressed convince that the women would effectively implement the knowledge gained for better yields. He hailed the gardeners for their cooperation and steadfastness during the training, and Global Unification The Gambia, for empowering the rural women.
