About Ghana Diaspora Homecoming Celebration 2019
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.
