Ghanaians Abroad Coalition Formed

To Champion The Interests Of Ghanaian Communities - Worldwide. New Organization Also Plans To Assist Ghanaians At Home

A new organization, " Ghanaians Abroad Coalition" has been formed to empower and represent the interests of all Ghanaians, - Worldwide. The rationale of the Founder, Mr. Kwame Appiah Boateng, (popularly known as "J.P.K.") and Co-Founder, Mr. Kwame Antwih is that, Ghanaian Communities everywhere in the world would be stronger if they are organized under one organization, and moreover, Ghanaians abroad can effectively contribute to the development of Ghana and represent their interests and the interests of Ghanaians at home under a united coalition.

The organization is non - partisan, according to the interim Executive Members. Its main objectives are : to represent the interests of all Ghanaians abroad - in Ghana; secondly, to attract investors [worldwide] - to Ghana and also, to contribute to the development of Ghana by improving healthcare, education, housing, technology, infrastructure, transportation, tourism, to mention but a few.

The interim President of the "Ghanaians Abroad Coalition", Mr. Kwame Appiah Boateng, the first Ghanaian-American to run for Mayor of Los Angeles, calls upon all Ghanaians and Friends of Ghana to join the Coalition for empowerment.

Membership of the organization is free.

The "Ghanaians Abroad Coalition" is currently recruiting Regional Chairmen or Chairwomen [ all over the World ] on voluntarily basis.

As an incentive for membership with " Ghanaians Abroad Coalition", the interim President of the Coalition is currently negotiating with some major Airlines and Hotels, (under another organization), - " Group Tours", to consider the possibility of offering cheap Airline tickets and reasonable Hotel accomodations for future travels, or tourism.
