Why Ghana?

One of the most politically stable countries in West Africa yet suffers from crippling poverty.

Made up of over 100 ethnic groups and over 250 languages and dialects.

24% of families live on less than $1 USD a day.

Jobs are scarce, leading to high numbers of self-employed market and street sellers.

One quarter of all 7 to 14-year-olds combine school and work.

Less than half of Ghanaian children complete senior high school.

40% of rural areas countrywide do not have electricity.

There is one dedicated diabetes clinic serving the whole of the Volta Region - a region of over 2 million people.

Preventable and treatable infectious diseases (including malaria) are amongst the biggest cause of premature deaths in Ghana.
