Ghana

We acquired a majority stake in Vodafone Ghana Telecom in 2008. 

We have made significant investments in Ghana’s infrastructure since starting our work there. Our network now covers more than 90% of the population, and we are one of the largest mobile operators in Ghana. Vodafone is also the market leader in fixed broadband services for Ghana.

Our payments and money transfer service, Vodafone Cash – built on the M-PESA platform – enables customers to send and receive money through their mobile phones and access a variety of additional financial services. 

We are also working to support equal access to health services and equipment in Ghana.  In 2021, for example, a €4.2 million donation by Vodafone Foundation and Vodacom Group helped provider Ghana with new cold-chain storage equipment for medicines used to treat COVID-19 and other serious illnesses. 

Ghana has one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and has made significant progress in poverty reduction – the first United Nations first Sustainable Development Goal. It is the world’s second largest producer of cocoa beans, after Côte d'Ivoire, and has a strong mining industry. Internet penetration – the number of individuals using the internet – is around 58% in Ghana, according to the World Bank.
