Ghana

Hailed as West Africa’s golden child, Ghana deserves its place in the sun. One of Africa’s great success stories, the country is reaping the benefits of a stable democracy in the form of fast-paced development.

The country is also one of the poorest in the world and suffers from one of the highest increase in HIV/AIDS infection rates on the planet. A new HIV infections in Ghana have recorded an alarming 70.15% increase in just one year.The figure increased from 12,000 new infections in 2015 to 20,148 in 2016.

Ghana has been suffering from civil conflicts and corruption and what unites the people regardless of their religious or ethnic group is everyone’s love for football. More than thousand kids play in middle of a large patch of scrub-lands in Ghana.
