Project description

While the Gambian economy is largely dependent on tourism, the “Yobaal” (“gift” in Wolof) project aims to contribute to the development of the creative market through its e-commerce platform. ACE Communications Executive plans to exhibit up to 100 companies in the creative industry selected according to the interests and habits of international consumers. This matchmaking between local creative industry professionals and prospects allows artisans to promote and sell their products beyond the tourist season. In order to support creativity within the creative industries in the Gambia, “Yobaal” plans to give priority to businesses run by young entrepreneurs and designers.
