IHRDA is currently conducting the fourth human rights training workshop for law enforcement officers in The Gambia. This session targets officers from agencies around the Farafenni area and runs from 26th – 28th JAN 2016.

It should be noted that our target is to realise 8 of these training sessions in different localities within The Gambia between October 2015 and March 2016.

Each participant is given a CD with compilation of all relevant Gambian laws, as well as all African Union and United Nations instruments pertaining to policing and human rights. Meanwhile, we are developing a human rights manual for Gambia law enforcement agencies.

This project is being realized with the financial support of British Embassy, Banjul.
