As Ghana reflects on its 60-year history, there is a lot to be proud of.
Not only the country’s growth into a thriving and successful nation state, but the achievements of Ghanaians everywhere, a global community spanning many borders.
In the decades since 1960, millions went abroad seeking new opportunities. They left behind a deteriorating economy under successive military regimes, to build a new life.
Thousands of skilled Ghanaians moved to places as diverse as the UK, Germany, the United States and elsewhere in Africa.
