Where We Work
Ghana is located in West Africa on the Gulf of Guinea between Cote D'Ivoire, Togo and Benin. The country was the first on the continent to gain independence from colonial rule in 1957 and has a rich culture of democracy and freedom. Even with a multitude of ethnic groups, diverse religious groups, 9 official languages, and hundreds of dialects, Ghanaians pride themselves in their national identity.
With a population of over 28 million, the demand for fish in the nation is high and small-scale, or artisanal, fishing makes up nearly 4% of the country's GDP. Addressing the environmental and social vulnerabilities of these communities is a major task in acheiving the Sustainable Development Goals in Ghana.
