The commune of Diaroumé welcomed, this Saturday, April 17, 2021, the BR team of GoLD from Sédhiou, for the guidance of the local teams for the implementation of the BBG-E tool in the pilot commune. The meeting was chaired by the Mayor of the commune of Diaroumé, in the presence of his two deputies, the BBG-E focal point of the CT, the ACTs of Diaroumé and Bambali, the FC of the Bounkiling department and the team of USAID GOLD in Sédhiou.
Speaking, the Mayor once again thanked GoLD for the choice made on Diaroumé, to start the pilot phase of the implementation of BBG-E in the new municipalities of the Sédhiou Region. In response to this choice made on his town, he also gave instructions to his team early on, for the smooth running of the meeting, but also and above all, for efficient data collection in the field. For his part, the regional coordinator of GoLD of Sédhiou addressed his warm congratulations to the municipal team, for the efforts made on a daily basis, in order to better respond to the concerns of the populations. Returning to the subject of the meeting, he maintains that the choice made on the municipality of Diaroumé is not fortuitous, because since the signing of the framework memorandum of understanding with GoLD, the municipality has always shown its availability to collaborate with the program, by providing all the necessary information. Also, the dynamism of the mayor and his team was one of the criteria that determined the choice made for the municipality of Diaroumé. Finally, he invites all stakeholders to spare no effort for the success of this pilot phase of BBG-E implementation, in order to duplicate the model in the other extension municipalities of the Sédhiou Region.
