#Peter Boling on Dec 15, 2014 :
These are the basics people are reporting to me as costs as of December 2014:

These are estimates for providing for about 30 people, mostly adults.
The first number is how many days it will last, and the second number is the cost in GHS (cedis).
The exchange rate will vary, but at 318 GHS per $100 USD the first item, Rice 100 lbs Bag for 240 GHS is about $75 USD.

Overall right now I can provide for about 45 people for 2 weeks on $800 USD. Food in Ghana is way more expensive than rent.

Rice 100 lbs Bag 9 240
Coal Big Bag 7 70
Red Oil Big Jug 7 100
Pepa Bucket 3.5 30
Cassava Root Big Bag 5 98
Cassava Root Small Bag 2 30
Yam Big Bag 5.5 100
Mega Big Pack 14 50
Salt 14 30
Soap 11 40

Hello i just wondering what will be the cost of making rice with ghana soup for seven people
#Ametornu on Sep 22, 2014 :
I am highly concerned about the average cost of living per person.if monthly recommended minimum amount of money for food per person is320.44$ How much is the monthly salary for the average workers?
2.Some newly employed have worked for more than a year without pay.what do their employers thought they are eating and how long does it take to prepare pay check. The central government should try to address this issue.

I have been talking to a family in Ghana and they are telling me that they do not have enough food to eat everyday. This is really concerning me. Could this be true? What kind of health care is there for poor people?
#Nationalist on Apr 28, 2013 :
Ghana must press forward for affordable Education without delay. We do not have effective and efficient Human resources. Our infrastructures are badly damaged and still mismanaging our resources! Clarity Governance must be debated on the floor. Cost of borrowing is too high to encourage Job Creation. We must create FREE Vocational and Training Institutions for much needed areas in our Country. Every Child must be a success upbringing. Traces of prejudice and tribalism is costing us dearly and does not set our feet forward. Our One Central Government need to be reviewed if still needed! Scholarships must not be given to the favored few. Love My Country.
