Welcome to GWAG!
Headquartered in Atlanta, the Ghanaian Women's Association of Georgia (GWAG) is a 501(c)(3) organization that promotes entrepreneurship for minority women in Georgia, and empowers women in underserved communities in Ghana by supporting initiatives in healthcare and education that create a positive social impact.
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 engaging in activities geared towards sustaining personal, professional, and community development.
- ✔ Service beyond self

Our members are our most important asset - They are the force that allows the Association to carry out its many philanthropic efforts and achieve its mission.
We are blessed with dedicated members who work tirelessly to design and implement programs that give back to the community, promote entrepreneurship, and culture.
