Introduction / History

The Logba people live in villages in Ghana's Volta Districts of Hohoe and Ho. They make their home in mountainous terrain, in the shadow of Ghana's highest mountain, Mount Afadzato. Most of the Logba people live in their traditional villages, although sometimes they travel to the cities of Hohoe and Ho to go to the market and for other personal reasons.

The Logba meet their daily needs by subsistence farming, raising crops such as plantain, rice, corn, yams and cassava. Some of the people sell produce or animals, such as goats and chickens, to raise the money they need for special occasions or medical expenses.

The majority of the Logba people practice traditional religion, believing in the existence of spirits that inhabit natural objects or phenomena. They greatly fear these spirits and rely on the spirits of their ancestors to protect them.

Christianity came to the region through two large Christian denominations approximately 50 years ago. Other, smaller Christian groups have been reaching out and gaining ground over the past 20 years or so. There are some churches among the Logba, but their services and teaching are in the trade language, which most of the people do not understand well.
