Ghana is the safest country in West Africa regarding crime. You are probably safer walking in the streets here than you are at home. Ghana is a peaceful country. Most of the people are friendly, warm and helpful. However, to make your stay even safer and more comfortable, HACGhana has developed certain guidelines. These guidelines were developed with your safety in mind, so please follow the guidelines for a safe and exciting trip. Please remember that every civil society has some unsociable elements. Ghana is no exception in this.
Please do not walk alone after dark. In case of emergencies, call your host family, the project leader, or the HACGhana staff.
Please do not take alcoholic drinks with other local people at a restaurant.
Please do not join political demonstrations, discussions and groups.
