In 1957, Ghana (formerly known as the Gold Coast) gained its independence and became known as the first sub-Saharan African country to liberate from colonial rule. Upon its independence, the future of Ghana seemed very promising with a rising economy. Affluent in gold, rich in soil and agriculture, and known for being one of the world’s leading cocoa producers. Indeed the country started off very well towards prosperity. In the 1970s amid turbulent politics, Ghana’s economy declined and the passage towards prosperity was somehow lost along the way. Ghana has made major strides and has had some wins. Yet, six decades after gaining its independence, Ghana is still characterized by the many promises and false hopes given by the public sector, the learned helplessness as result of continuous decline, the distrust resulting from corruption, many complaints and tears from the masses, and many of the young who dream of a better life abroad. We have failed our people and our land. Overall, the Seeker Movement Ghana understands that Ghana’s problems did not happen overnight, and the solutions will not happen overnight either. Furthermore, there is no linear solution as the world we live in is complex and dynamic. The reality is that the problems society faces today are interconnected with many other elements that are always shifting. Thus, to give Ghana what is deserving and prosperous the Seeker Movement Ghana employs a multifaceted approach.
We seek for Ghana’s development.
