GHANA FAST FACTS
Ghana, officially the Republic of Ghana, is a country in Western Africa. It abuts the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, sharing borders with Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, and Togo in the east. Ghana covers an area of 239,535 km2 (92,485 sq mi), spanning diverse biomes that range from coastal savannas to tropical rainforests. With over 32 million inhabitants, Ghana is the second-most populous country in West Africa, after Nigeria. The capital and largest city is Accra; other major cities are Kumasi, Tamale, and Sekondi-Takoradi.
Ghana is a multi-ethnic country with linguistic and religious groups; while the Akan are the largest ethnic group, they constitute a plurality. Most Ghanaians are Christians (71.3%); almost a fifth are Muslims; a tenth practice traditional faiths or report no religion. Suffused with the most incredible energy, Ghana is one of Africa’s biggest attractions, with welcoming beaches, gorgeous hinterland, diverse wildlife and vibrant cities.
WHY VOLUNTEER IN GHANA
In Ghana, poverty is increasingly concentrated in rural regions where most low-income families rely on cocoa farming for their livelihoods. Cocoa is the largest export crop in Ghana, and given its growing global demand, it holds significant potential for lifting many families out of extreme poverty. Ghana has made important strides over the last few decades in its economic development, serving as an example of progress in Western Africa.
Yet many families still live at (or just above) poverty lines, where one small setback like an unexpected health care costs or poor weather during the growing season can drive them back into poverty. Strengthening the agriculture sector, and ensuring their children have a good local school to attend, are essential for building upon the country’s progress.
Many of the Ghanaian families supported by Go Volunteer Africa are farmers who are working tirelessly to improve their crop yields and support their families. They rely on agriculture for their livelihoods, but they often struggle to earn enough to provide for their families or send their children to school.
Go Volunteer Africa has been sending volunteers to Ghana since 2012. We aim to reduce poverty and improve on education, social services and healthcare for the vulnerable communities. Go Volunteer Africa’s volunteer opportunities in Ghana are for young people, students, families, couples and adults international volunteers who want to help to make a difference and give their free time and effort to local children and people with an ethical volunteering program.
