The Need is Great in Ghana
Ghana is located in western Africa and is rich in minerals and natural resources with gold, oil, and cocoa leading as its largest exports. Agriculture makes up 20% of the GDP and over 50% of the workforce are employed in it. Ghana has made great strides in working to reduce extreme poverty, but there is still a great need. 61% of Ghanaians still live under the overall poverty line of $5.50 per day.
