The founder of the Global Youth Innovation Network (GYIN) Gambia chapter, Mamadou Edrisa Njie, has been recognized for his outstanding professionalism in youth development in The Gambia and beyond.
The EhtioTelecom of Ethiopia, in partnership with The Business Executive Media Group, on November 4, 2022, presented a certificate recognizing Mr. Njie among outstanding African professionals at an award ceremony held at Ethiopia Sheraton Addis Hotel in Addis Ababa.
The African Outstanding Professionals Awards was organized by The Business Executive Media Group, a leading international business publishing, entrepreneurial /corporate sector events organizing, and business networking group of companies headquartered in Ghana and has offices in Nigeria and The United Arab Emirates.
“I am delighted to have been recognized by The Business Executive, and I thank them for the recognition. I dedicate this achievement to my mentor, Dr. Amina Silla, the Chief Executive Officer of GYIN International,” Njie said upon receiving the award.
The award is a new pan-continental awards scheme designed to identify and publicly recognize competent and accomplished professionals across the various delineated fields of activity. It is open to indigenous Africans and foreign nationals who are domiciled and professionally active in Africa.
The awards, according to The Business Executive, aim to encourage and promote professionalism in socio-economic activity all around the continent to support wider efforts to make Africa most competitive within the emergent global economy and society; and to directly identify professionals who are world-class in their activities and therefore most deserving of taking part in international supply/value chains and socio-economic programs, events, initiatives, and projects.
Mr. Njie founded the GYIN Gambia Chapter in 2012 after attending the launching of GYIN International in Cotonou, Benin, a year earlier.
