Bai Joof

55 years ago, Bai started learning from his grandfather. His father was also an artist and his children also work in the field. He not only taught his children, but he also teaches other jobless youngsters. These young boys and girls left school with no profession, and he decided to help them develop their skills. In Gambia, after school, many young people do not have a job and no skills. After 35 years teaching, over 100 artisans are currently working and living thanks to his classes. He now considers his pupils better than himself. Many times, they work together. What he cannot do, he asks his pupils. He has created this way a big artisan community, they work together and share their experiences and skills.
