GAMBIA FAMILY PLANNING ASSOCIATION UNABLE TO PAY STAFF SALARIES FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS!

Freedom Newspaper Online: "Staffers of The Gambia Family Planning Association—a non Governmental Organization engaged in the promotion of birth control, and the prevention of risky sexual behavior in the West African country are battling with unpaid salaries for the past six months, the Freedom Newspaper can report. The Organization, which was onetime dubbed as Gambia’s most progressive establishment is unable to pay its workers salary.

A GFPA insider who spoke with the Freedom Newspaper said she personally has not been paid her July salary, and that there are other workers on the wait for their unpaid salaries. In an email sent to the Freedom Newspaper last week, a GFPA staffer said “Pa I’m working with the Gambia Family Planning Association for the past years. But things are really hard with its staff due to financial corruption by its so-called Management. This was one of the best NGOS in the country but due to the Management’s selfishness, and mismanagement of resources, some of the staff are 6months without salary, whilst the majority are 5months without salaries.”"
