Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 20

The CSO and volunteer organizations have been complementing Government’s efforts to enhance understanding of the Agenda 2030. Volnet Gambia, a civil society organization, produced an SDG film titled “17 Goals for a Better Future” which localised the contents of each goal from a national perspective. The organization has since been screening the film in different communities.
