The Ateiku community is in the Western Region of Ghana, Africa.
It is two (2) hours, thirty (30) minutes drive from Tarkwa, the nearest City because of the bad road network. The nearest hospital is in Tarkwa and you can just imagine driving a sick person in an emergency situation under these circumstances.
The people in Ateiku are mostly farmers. They cultivate cassava, plantain, corn and yam. Their farm implements are mainly a hoe and cutlass under this modern age of mechanized farming. As a result of this tedious farm work the life expectancy in the community are 54 years for the female and 52 years for the male.
