Gambian Success Stories

The ILCU Foundation has been working in collaboration with the National Association of Cooperative Credit Unions of Gambia (NACCUG) since the beginning of the 1990’s. During this time the ILCU Foundation has been instrumental in the success of the movement and has brought the national body to a point of self-sustainability. Through the ILCU Foundation’s partnership with Irish Aid, NACCUG has developed a video boasting many success stories, including beneficiaries of financial literacy training which is only made possible through the support of Irish credit unions and their members.

The Irish League of Credit Unions Foundation

Recently, the ILCU Foundation celebrated its 25th anniversary by hosting a weeklong International Partners Conference (IPC) and an inaugural Learning & Sharing Forum. To mark the silver anniversary, over one hundred delegates from across the island of Ireland descended to Johnstown House, Enfield, Co. Meath to take part in the Forum.

This was the first stand-alone event that the ILCU Foundation has had the pleasure of hosting, which was attended by credit union staff members, chairpersons, directors and former board members of the ILCU Foundation.

The international contingent was made up of high level delegates from the ILCU Foundation partner counties and donor agencies.
