Ghana is located in West Africa, known for its lush forests, diverse wildlife, sandy beaches, but most importantly, its rich history. Ghana became the first African nation to become independent from British colonization, making the country a symbol of black achievement. Ghana is regarded as the seventh-best governed country in Africa and one of only five on the continent to have a free press.
Ghana faces significant social and economic challenges, such as a lack of electricity and clean drinking water, particularly in rural areas and small villages. Youth education in sexuality and gender equality is helping control the spread of HIV/AIDS. However, child labour and sexual exploitation of children are ongoing challenges.
