Yassin Faal


Yassin was born and raised in The Gambia as part of a family of nine, in a town called Bakoteh. She is a powerful leader who has been involved with youth since 2005, first with an organization called “The Voice of the Young,” and now with Youth Crime Watch of The Gambia, our Ignitus affiliate in that country. In addition, she is a TV presenter of a youth show called “The Change Makers Show.” Yassin enjoys connecting with friends and family, and her ultimate dream for young people is to see to it that everyone lives in a violence-free environment. Her philosophy is that “Destiny can be delayed but never can it be denied.”
