Regional History: Ghana

The country Ghana is located on the West side of Africa, on the coast that meets with the Atlantic Ocean, and is bordered by three countries: Cote d’Ivoire (also known as Ivory Coast) to the west, Togo to the east, and Burkina Faso to the north.  Officially called the Republic of Ghana, the word Ghana translates to “Warrior King”.

Archeological evidence shows that people have been in and living in Ghana since 1500 BC. The territory of modern day Ghana includes the area of what was once the Empire of Ashanti, one of the leading states before European colonization.

Ghana is also well known for its wealth in gold, petroleum and natural gas in the south.  In the north of Ghana, it is recognized that it has some of the most fertile lands that include beautiful savannas, wildlife parks, and nature preserves, thus giving it an advantage in agriculture.map-ghana-africa-imp
