Ghana is not an exception as migration has become a common
household survival strategy and the 'basic survival' strategy for
individuals and families to enable them cope with difficult
economic conditions. However, migration from the Northern Regions
(comprising the Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regions) of the
country to the economically rich regions in the Southern part of
Ghana (particularly the Greater Accra Region) has been taking place
for a very long time due to environmental problems, ethnic
conflicts and endemic poverty. Men have dominated the process of
migration from the North to the South to supply labour in the cocoa
farms, industries and mining centres. Historically, the few women
involved in the migration process have usually migrated to join
their husbands. However, the trend has changed since the 1980s with
more women migrating independently to urban centres in Southern
Ghana to work as head porters (kaya yei) and in other jobs such as
petty trading and housemaids.
