The Republic of Ghana is located in West Africa and is bordered by Côte d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Togo and the Gulf of Guinea. Some of its major cities are Accra, Kumasi, Tamale, Tema, Takoradi and Cape Coast.
There are 79 living languages of Ghana, but only 11 of them are recognized officially. The school policy is to make sure that all children can speak English by Primary 3.
Ghana has a population of about 20,000,000 people that live in various areas of the country. The culture is ethnically diverse and is evident through the arts, clothing and food.
Ghana has 10 regions and 172 districts within those 10 regions. There are hundreds of thousands of Ghanaian children who are educated within these regions.
Education is the key to any country’s success and the TLM program works closely with the Ministry of Education to help improve the literacy of the youth there.
The children are educated in school houses throughout Ghana. The locations of these schools vary, but some of them are crowded, located in rural areas and have very little resources for the abundance of children that they educate. Despite some of the shortcomings, these children are eager to learn and excited about education.
