Welcome to Ghana!


Ghana a country along the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean, in the subregion of West Africa, avec une superficie de 238,535 km2 et une population de 28,102,471 de ghanéens qui a pour capital Accra. Ghana is bordered by the Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, Togo in the east, and the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean in the south. Ghana’s actual president is Nana Akufo-Addo. English is the main language in Ghana, but still, there are ethnic languages such as Akan, Ewe, Dagomba, Dangme, etc…

Ghana was the first African majority to control the government and became the first sub-Saharan African colony to gain independence from Britain. Ghana is widely considered one of the most stable democracies in Africa.

Ghana takes its name from an ancient empire that spread across much of West Africa during the 4th to the 11th centuries AD. Ghana meanswarrior king” and was the title accorded to the kings of the medieval Ghana Empire in West Africa.

Ghana is a Gold Coast because there is a fort composed of gold, ivory, spices, etc…

Families eat together around a large bowl at mealtime.

Ghanaians may be wild at some times, which can make for animated arguments and celebrations, but are generally warm, extremely friendly, and sociable—even with strangers. Ghanaians tend to take life at a relaxed pace, viewing time as a series of events rather than a matter of hours or minutes. “Take time” is a common phrase indicating that things need not be rushed. Tolerance and acceptance are typical individual characteristics.

Group (family and community) needs come before personal desires. For example, a person who earns a salary often shares his or her income with family members, and remittances from Ghanaians working abroad sometimes support entire families.

Main dishes in Ghana include Jollof rice ( my favorite by the way, you should absolutely try it :)) originally from Senegal, Waakye, fufu and goat light soup, Red-red ( weird name but delicious) etc…

Football is the dominant sport in Ghana. Their National football team is called the Black Stars but Girls plays too. Their National football team is called Black queens (who said girls couldn’t do what boys do!)
