Ghana is endowed with vast natural resources and rates the world's second largest producer of cocoa with appreciable political stability. Nonetheless, the country is still underdeveloped with the majority lacking access to basic capabilities to live dignified life. What is preventing Ghana from maximizing her potentials for the benefit of the citizenry after 54 years of independence? Who is behind the denial of the basic rights of many Ghanaians as a result of severe poverty? How can poverty be reduced in the country? This book contains grassroots judgment on poverty situation in Ghana.The concept 'poverty' is well explained vis-à-vis human rights and why poverty should be considered as an abuse of human rights. The book concludes that the actions and inactions of power-holders emanating from lack of respect for peoples' rights to dignified life has rendered many communities underdeveloped with serious consequences. The analysis has shown the dynamics of poverty and should be useful to international development workers, African local government groups or individuals and organisations interested in getting perceptive on poverty and how to fight it in a sustainable way.
