You’re in mango territory! Almost every house here has a mango tree so this is the perfect spot for you to sample some of Ghana’s finest produce!
Mamprugu-Moagduri has a strong sense of community. Many people live in small mud huts which they share with on average five other family members. Often, they all sleep in one room.
Women and girls are responsible for looking after the home and caring for the children, often at the cost of their education. More than 2 in 3 women here aged 6 years and older have never been to school and many girls are forced into child marriage too young, often to older men where they are vulnerable to exploitation and abuse. There are also a number of illegal gold mines close by where you’ll find children from the poorest families working to earn an income for their family. Hidden from the authorities, they are forced to work underground in dangerous conditions without daylight for many hours.
