MindtheGAP is a Digital Action Campaign .
- To create awareness on the enormous opportunities in the Agricultural sector for young women graduates.
- To petition the government of the republic of Ghana on the huge gap in the sector and the need to support and encourage young women already in it or want to go into it.
The problem mind the gap seeks to solve in the long run with this campaign is Graduate unemployment and Food Insecurity. This is a Global security threat.
According to the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research, 50% of graduates may wait up to three years without finding jobs in Ghana. During this period the security of the nation is at stake.
On the other hand,Ghana,a country with rich and fertile soil and comparably favourable climate, imports almost all daily agricultural consumables from countries with virtually desert conditions.
What will be the greatest change if young women are empowered to produce healthy foods for the country and create wealth and jobs for themselves?
Food is basic need for every single individual living on this planet. Even the sectors rated as most important still rely on the Agricultural sector. If you are sick,you need to food eat (health sector), if you are hungry,how can you study(education sector).
This Food can only be from the Agricultural sector so there is a compelling need for the major stakeholders to make the sector attractive for young women who have the guts to challenge the status quo by going into this sector to create jobs and wealth and grow healthy foods.
We need to produce at least 50% more food than we are currently producing to be able to feed the world's population on track to 9 billion in 2050. There is the need to mind this gap.
There is a need for graduates to take their destinies into their own hands by creating wealth and jobs for themselves.
