THE EMMANUEL IVORGBA FOUNDATION, GHANA

Formerly known as the Gold Coast, Ghana gained independence from Britain in 1957, becoming the first sub-Saharan nation to break free from colonial rule. Ghana is situated in the center of the Gold Coast of Africa and has a 535-km-long shoreline that includes lagoons and mangrove forests. The country is endowed with rich natural resources. Timber, gold, diamonds, bauxite, manganese, and oil contribute to making Ghana among the wealthier nations in West Africa. While its economy is one of the most successful in the region, it remains heavily dependent on international finance. Ghana, like most West African countries, has daunting environmental challenges since its economic development depends directly on natural resources. Large tracts of dense forest have been cleared to support increasing cocoa production. Mining is causing localized land degradation and water pollution.

The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation's areas of interventions in Ghana include, Education, Leadership and Youth Capacity Development.
