Support for returnees

The centre provides information on the labour market in Ghana and helps returning migrants with social and economic reintegration. We want to give the necessary individual support to those who have lived abroad for a while and who are now working in Ghana again or would like to start a business.

Advice for returnees

First of all, my team listens to the questions and challenges which the returnees tell us about. Before the Covid-19 pandemic broke out we used to hold one-to-one meetings here in the centre, but now we mostly give advice remotely. People give us their details, then we ask them relevant questions and give them advice based on that, whether by phone or by Skype.

The uncertainty was gone

My name is Naa; I'm 29 years old and come from Ghana. I used to work as an event manageress. In 2015, I went to Germany to start a master's degree course in Development Economics and International Studies. But it was clear to me from the start that I would return after I finished. I wanted to help my country develop. At the same time, I was uncertain how I could build a future there.

A new start in your own shop

My name is Derrick; I'm 29 years old and come from Ghana. I studied computer science, but couldn't find work in my home country. I came to Germany as a tourist in 2014, stayed there and worked in a restaurant. But my life was not as I had imagined it.

Exploiting opportunities in Ghana

I'm Kweku and I live in Ghana. After graduating from university, I initially considered emigrating. But with a little help I then actually found a job in Ghana. Now I'm making all sorts of plans for my future here in my homeland.
