Fatoumata Fatty earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from the university last year. She is now an accountant in the Gambian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.




Omar Jallow, from Dobo, last year completed a four-­‐year bachelor’s program in nursing at the university. He now is a nurse at the Jammeh Foundation Hospital at Bundung, in the suburbs of Banjul.
