The German-Ghanaian development aid association was established 1993 from Ghanaians living in Kiel and was registered in Kiel district court under the number VR 3626 with the name Ga-Adanme culture-union e.V.. The founding members were all immigrants from the Greater Accra region. Immigrants from other parts of Ghana wanted a change of name before joining because they felt neglected, therefore the association was renamed German-Ghanaian development aid association. Our association is open not only for Africans but also for everybody that is interested in African culture and way of life.
The aim of the association is to help to improve in the long-term the development in the rural area of Ghana through help to self-help.
Furthermore, the association works on the integration of immigrants from Africa in the society of the Federal Republic of Germany. We try to promote the integration through different bases, like cultural events, cooperation with the Intercultural weeks in Kiel, educational-offers and information-work
