NEDI VISION: The Platform for Entrepreneurially Empowered and Independent Youths and Women

NEDI MISSION: To Empower Gambian Youths and Women through the Provision of Training in Entrepreneurship and Investment, Loans to Operate Businesses in the Informal Sector and Business Advice to Ensure Investment Sustainability.

The Vision and Mission of NEDI were generated to guide the future transformation of NEDI as it assumes its new mandate as a parastatal enterprise. A rigorous strategy analysis resulted in the generation of a refocused strategy to meet more realistic requirements of its new internal and external operational environment.
