This article has helped a lot on my SS project for the Central African Republic. It tells me how much of that ethnic group is in the CAR but, it does not tell me about where they live, what they eat, or anything else for that matter.

Thanks for helping in my SS project,

Where do we find the Gola ethnic group in Africa. I have discovered many of our ethnic groups find in Liberia in some other African countries. I am only in doubt of Gola.
