The Association of Gambian students in Turkey (AGAST) is a Gambian students association in Turkey that was formed at the end of the year, 2010. The founding of the association was born out of a genuine desire to strengthen brotherhood and support Gambian students pursuing higher education in the Republic of Turkey. Since its inception in 2010, the organisation has, in various ways, significantly contributed to the general welfare of Gambian students studying in various cities across Turkey. The Association is also committed to portraying itself as an emblem of hope, unity, and brotherhood and bringing about serious commitment and actions towards promoting the general interest and welfare of all Gambian students across Turkey.
The motto of AGAST is: “Discipline, Hard work and Service”
