U.S. Ambassador Honors 2017 Mandela Fellows

Ambassador C. Patricia Alsup recently hosted a reception honoring 10 young Gambian leaders on their return from the Mandela Washington Fellowship program in the United States.

Introducing the Fellows to the Embassy community and the broader Mission partners, Ambassador Alsup remarked: “Our Gambian Mandela Fellows continue to demonstrate strong values. From our first group in 2014 to this most recent group, all of our Mandela Fellows have shown extraordinary leadership, selfless devotion to volunteerism, and a commitment to improving the conditions and opportunities for ordinary Gambians in their respective communities.”
