Agortorme is a farming community in the Ketu District of the Volta Region of Ghana.

Over 53% of the labor force works in the agricultural sector, with the main crops being maize, cassava, cowpea, and sweet potatoes.

This area has the highest population density in the Volta Region, and is known for its cross-border trading and production of high quality vegetables.

 

Many people living in this area are extremely poor, and as a result families send their sons away to work as bonded slaves for fisherman or cattle owners, and their daughters are forced into other forms of slavery.
