About Ghana

Since the Greenwich Meridian, or Prime Meridian, passes through Ghana, and because if its proximity to the equator, it is said that Ghana is geographically closer to the "center" of the world than any other country. But in this case, location isn't everything:

  • Nearly 79 percent of the people live on less than U.S. $2 a day.
  • In the upper east region, nearly nine out of 10 people live in poverty.
  • Seventy percent of the country's rural poor have limited access to basic social services, safe drinking water and electricity.
