Headquartered in Atlanta, the Ghanaian Women's Association of Georgia (GWAG) is a 501(c)(3) organization that works towards bringing change and development within under-served communities in Ghana by supporting healthcare and educational initiatives for women and children. We share the belief that when a woman is empowered, she invests her knowledge and resources in her children, family and eventually, her community. Drawing strength from our talents, skills, resources, and diversity, we seek to establish a thriving, engaged and visible Ghanaian community in Georgia while providing a platform for the exchange of ideas geared towards sustaining personal and community development.
GWAG’s mission is to help alleviate the suffering of women and children in under-served communities in Ghana by mobilizing and deploying resources in an effort to promote sustainable development.
To implement sustainable programs that improve access to healthcare and education and enhance the lives of women and children to enable them to participate in every aspect of life.
