Quantum Associates to Contribute to Silicon Valley Dream

Friday, August 31, 2007

The Managing Director of Quantum Associates, Mr. Gibriel Chorr, has echoed his institution’s commitment to joining the march towards the realization of President Jammeh’s Silicon Valley dream of transforming The Gambia into an enviable nation-state.

He added that Quantum Associates would contribute towards the achievement of this lofty dream by providing employable skills to youths of The Gambia to enable them participate meaningfully in national development efforts.

Mr. Chorr was speaking in a graduation ceremony for 18 people that completed training in Quantum’s Summer Class of 2007.

“I was amazed by the level of intelligence and dedication shown by these students whom, as I speak, are in the middle of their projects and, in a few months’ time, we will be parading them as programmers who would have distinguished themselves and developed a profession such that they will not have to work for anyone else and would not go hungry again for the rest of their lives,” he stated.

Mr. Chorr finally expressed delight in the students for the successful completion of their courses as well as commending them for the effort and success.
