Republic of Ghana

The Republic of Ghana is a country in West Africa. It borders Côte d'Ivoire (formerly Ivory Coast) to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east, and the Gulf of Guinea to the south.

Upon achieving independence from the United Kingdom in 1957, the name Ghana was chosen for the new nation to reflect the ancient Empire of Ghana that once extended throughout much of western Africa.

Sankofa in Ghana...

Sankofa's mission into the Republic of Ghana, West Africa began in 1993. God touched the hearts of Sankofa's founders (Richard Willis and Yaw Fobi) and shared His vision to develop model villages in Africa and ultimately throughout the world. Using limited personal funds only, Richard and Yaw moved forward on FAITH and targeted the village of Adum Afrancho, which is in the Ashanti region of Ghana, as the first model village.
