The Fatu Network hereby announces its 2019 Gambian heroes awards event.
The Fatu Network is the leading online news provider in The Gambia and this year, we are coming up with an awards program that seeks to recognize and celebrate Gambians who have offered valuable service to the country and to their communities.
The awards event for 2019 is scheduled to take place on 14 March 2020 where we will honor a number of Gambians. The event will attract at least 1000 people drawn from corporate Gambia.
As part of the activities, an awards committee has already been set up which comprises seven Gambians – three women and four men. The awards committee is tasked with identifying the different awards categories and candidates for each of the categories. This committee will work independently of The Fatu Network. The names and biography of all members of the awards committee will be published soon.
This event will be graced by high profile guests from both in and outside The Gambia.
The chief executive officer of The Fatu Network, Fatu Camara, said: “The event will be one of its kind in The Gambia. I feel that it is time to recognize the efforts of Gambians who have been working tirelessly in different sectors of our society.
“The Gambian diaspora also plays and continues to play a significant role in the socio-economic development of the country. They will also be awarded.”
