Event Details

The Ghana Diaspora Celebration & Homecoming Summit 2019 (GDHS’19) is a four-day event recognizing and celebrating the immense contributions to nation building by the Ghanaian Diaspora. The event will not only highlight past contributions but will focus on present contributions as well, whiles furthering the advocacy for political, economic, and all other systems and policies that would facilitate future contributions by the Ghanaian Diaspora.

And in light of the fourth centennial commemoration of the arrival of enslaved Africans in the western hemisphere, this event recognizes that the Ghanaian Diaspora extends beyond Ghanaian citizens or nationals and their immediate relatives, but also include others outside the borders of Ghana, with roots to, or a strong vested interest in the country. This recognition, is based upon the need and desire for a long-term engagement between Ghana and her important stakeholder constituency. It is accompanied by the Ghana Government’s open-arm policy to all people of African descent.

Ghana was virtually built by her diaspora. From historic contributors such as Tetteh Quarshie and the Big Six to current difference makers like the CEO Group and Patrick Awuah, Ghanaians who left the shores and came back have played pivotal roles in the nation’s development. Yet recognition of the Ghanaian diaspora has been a virtual afterthought.

The Ghana Diaspora Celebration will use July 3rd through 6th in 2019 to do just that. The programs designed for this celebration will highlight and recognize diaspora contributions to nation building while delivering convincing advocacy for policies and systems to facilitate the unleashing of significantly more contributions from the Ghanaian diaspora.
