Though Ghana is relatively stable compared to other African states, still there exists a big underdevelopment. Additionally there is a big North-South divide inside the country. The Taha community is located in the political district called “Northern Region”. In this region one can find many communities like Taha, where similar drawbacks prevail:
The drinking water supply is insufficient, in fact the inhabitants of the villages have to walk far to attain any drinkable water at all. There is no electricity in many villages of the community. The infrastructure is unprogressive, the villages can be reached only with non-lined earth roads or not at all during the rainy season, when these are flooded.
Another striking deficit is the lack of a secondary school. Though there are a few primary and even Junior High schools, the children of the community cannot obtain a graduation which allows them to enter a job or university.
