National Diaspora Philanthropy Program Unveiled

A national diaspora Philanthropy initiative unveiled in Ghana. The program, an initiative of the Ghana Philanthropy Forum was birthed at the inauguration of the Cape Coast Community Development Foundation which was attended by hundreds of participants from Philanthropic, public and private sectors.  In his remarks, the Head of the Ghana Philanthropy Forum, Dr. Ben Ocra, indicated that it was high time an initiative such as this is launched to propel and augment national Development efforts towards the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals. According to Dr. Ocra the Diaspora Philanthropy Initiative will seek to connect citizens abroad with their homeland and most especially, their communities. Special emphasis to be placed on Communities with existing Community Foundations.

Dr. Ocra further noted, the renewal of such diaspora connections which is also in line with the Ghana Government’s mandates over the years, can help tackle many developmental needs while also nurturing talent, ideas, and techniques. Finally, he urged Government to provide the enabling environment, including tax incentives to foster the movement of Philanthropic capital and other resources to aid development in communities around the country.

The Ghana Philanthropy Forum (GPF) was born out of a vision to galvanize philanthropic efforts for sustainable community development in Ghana and beyond. Over the years GPF has embarked on a mission to harness the power of collective action and philanthropy to address societal challenges.

GPF’s partnership with the African Philanthropy Network, the Worldwide Initiative for Grant Maker Support (WINGS), Charities Aid Foundation (CAF-Global) among others has enabled us to expand our reach, deepen our impact, and leverage global best practices in philanthropy. Together, we’ve worked towards building resilient communities and promoting a culture of giving that transcends borders.

Over the years, GPF has evolved from a budding organization into a beacon of hope and change, establishing over 15 Community Foundations in Ghana and managing a diverse network of Civil Society Actors (CSAs). Our journey is a testament to the power of collective effort and strategic partnerships in driving societal transformation.

Our strategic position and focus have enables us draw credible partners in implementing national programs that widely address social marginalization, power imbalance by empowering women and youth, giving voice to minorities, Supporting Resilience and Stability, Building Trust in Societies and bolstering local action.For inquiries, contact info@ghanaphilanthropyforum.org
