COME, I’LL SHOW YOU THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
Ghana (officially the Republic of Ghana), with its approximately 29 million inhabitants, gained independence from Great Britain in 1957. Ghana borders Ivory Coast in the west, Togo in the east, and shares an inland border with Burkina Faso in the north. The capital city of Accra lies in the south along the Atlantic coast and is home to more than two million people. The official language is English, but another 70 languages are spoken throughout the country.
Much has been done for education in Ghana, where basic schooling is compulsory. In 2019, the literacy rate was 79%, but poverty continues to impact education and health, especially in rural regions.
Ghana has a diverse media landscape, and criticism of the government is possible. Ghana ranked 30th out of 180 countries on the 2020 World Press Freedom Index, published by Reporters without Borders.
