The Impetus Behind Launching This Campaign

A singular reason cannot be cited as an impetus behind the launch of this campaign. There are several reasons, some of which are discussed below.

Rising Global Inflation

There is not a single person who is not affected by the rising global inflation. The poor segments worldwide and those hailing from countries like the Gambia, etc., are hardest hit by this back-breaking inflation.

Food prices in such countries are persistently rising, making it difficult for ordinary folk to provide for their families viably.

Therefore., in this context, this current campaign is launched to help the poorer segments to afford one of the basic food items – cooking oil, whose usage spikes during the holy month.

Rampant Poverty In The Gambia

The incidence of poverty in the Gambia is high, with its level being deep and acute. Large swathes of the Gambian people have immense financial woes due to the unfriendly economic policies of the government. These policies only add to the financial suffering of the Gambian population.

Low Population Density

According to a report by USAID, the Gambia has a total population of just over 2 million people, of which about a 10th work abroad to earn a living.

Ideally, a low population density should spur economic growth and create several job opportunities. But given that the Gambia is a developing country with a teetering economy, this low population density has played an inverse role.

Owing to its low population, there is a dearth of job opportunities in the country.

Decreased Remittances

Another impact of a low population whose small percentage works abroad is a moderate flow of inward remittances in the country. In addition to these small numbers, the fact remains that most of these Gambian migrants lack proper education and skills and cannot find proper jobs abroad and rather end up finding work that is temporary and offers no hefty remuneration.

The first deputy governor of the Central Bank of the Gambia said that the Gambian diaspora sent in $712 million in inward remittances in 2022. These remittances play a critical part in the socioeconomic development of the country.

The Flailing Gambian Economy

  • The World Bank said that in 2021, the nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the Gambia was $2.04 billion.
  • Another report by the same institutions said that the GDP per capita income in the Gambia in the same year (2021) was $772.2 only.

These are some of the critically important reasons that served as a strong impetus behind launching this campaign.

Why Did ACE Money Transfer & Yonna Forex Join Hands For This Campaign?
