PURA STAFF RETURNS FROM 2014 YALI PROGRAMME AFTER MEETING PRESIDENT OBAMA
Ida Mboob Deputy Director Legal Licensing and Enforcement was one of six Gambians chosen to participate in the first ever Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) Washington Fellowship. Ida is among 500 young African leaders who travelled to the United States in June for a six week program at one of 20 prestigious U.S. universities, and also participated in a conference in Washington, D.C. hosted by President Obama.
Ms Mboob was selected from a candidate pool of over 510 Gambian applicants. She was part of a diverse group of leaders already making important contributions to the Gambia in business and entrepreneurship, public management, and civic leadership.
