Deafness and dumbness are so prevalent in Ghana's village at the base of the Akuapem hills that it may be considered the town with the highest concentration of deaf people.
According to Gabriel Ahiabor, the town became a special site for deaf people for hundreds of years. As a result, the townsfolk developed a local sign language used by hearing and deaf people daily.
Little is known by direct evidence about the incident of deafness in the village.
The Paga village in northern Ghana boasts a sacred water body where people can pet and sit on crocodiles. The crocodiles aren't harmful and are sacred creatures, making it possible for children to play with them.
Without fear, locals wash their clothes as little children play in the pond near the crocodiles' deadly jaws. Surprisingly, none of the 110 crocodiles at the sacred site have ever attacked a human.
