Nanumba North is one of the twenty (26) districts in the Northern Region of Ghana. The district shares boundaries with East Gonja District to the west and south-west, Yendi Municipal to the north. To the east, it shares boundaries with Zabzugu District, to the south with kpandai District and to the south east with the Nanumba South. The administrative district capital is Bimbilla.
The district is occupied by two major ethnic groups, namely the Nanumbas and Konkonbas and a few Basares and other minority tribes with the Nanumbas forming the dominant ethnic group. Therefore major languages spoken are Nanumba and Konkomba.
The quest for the youth in the Nanumba North District in the Northern Region to be part of the working group under the Youth Employment Agency seems to be frustrating without office of the agency in the district.
The Chamba and Nakpayili Communities in the Nanumba North and Nanumba South districts have benefited from a pilot Community Day Care Centre projects initiated by ActionAid to offer special care for kids free of charge.
