I am women’s rights activist, Executive Director and Co-Founder of GAMCOTRAP. Coordinator of One Billion Rising West Africa covering The Gambia, Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Mali and Sierra Leone. I am engaged in advocacy and social mobilisation to end FGM and GBV in the Gambia and also influence policy directions that are gender responsive and sensitive to advance the human rights of women. I engage in networking and building alliances and coalitions to end violence against women calling for Equality and Justice in the Family. My activism is focussed on the fight against FGM, promotion of gender justice and women’s human rights. I work with the grassroots bringing their agency to the forefront of development in line with the global agenda to advance the human rights of women and other vulnerable groups.
