The Santrokofi people speak the Sele language and live in three villages near Hohoe in the Volta Region of Ghana. Their main subsistence is agriculture, but they lack a market in their traditional area. For marketing purposes they go to Hohoe, which is at a distance of two and a half miles from their villages. Most of their farming is done for subsistence. An average farmer might sell a small amount of the cassava that he grows in his fields.
In the area of religion the Santrokofi have a long history of Christian missionary involvement dating back to 1840. Presently, there are various churches in the area, mainly the Presbyterian and the Roman Catholic church.
Economically the area started to decline with the fall of cocoa prices. The Santrokofi area has very few employment and educational opportunities to offer; thus, most young members of the people group have left home and moved to the larger towns and cities.
