The Gambia – victims and resisters of a former regime

This week in The Gambia we have been continuing our long term project documenting the Victims & Resisters of the former Yahya Jammeh regime.


It never gets any easier listening to their stories (3+ years in, with this ongoing multimedia series), but their strength only emboldens us to continue to create a photographic and video archive – a tool for advocacy, learning, historical record and hopefully reconciliation.


A special thanks to Nana-Jo Ndow, and Fily Nyabally at ANEKED for their support, over the last couple of weeks.
