Welcome to the team at the Ghanaian-German Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (GGC). We would like to help you realise your plans in Ghana.

I speak Twi, Fanti, Ga, English and Ewe and look forward to assisting you in these languages. Germany is a country that I know well. I lived for several years in Berlin, Germany's capital city. I also learned German during this time.

I look forward to helping you find a job, with your project idea or on your path to self-employment. I will also help you look for somewhere to live when you return. The languages I speak to support you are French, English, Twi, Ga and Fanti. Together we will find new perspectives for you in Ghana.

I grew up in Accra. That is why I am very familiar with the opportunities in our city. I have also lived in the USA and in the Netherlands. My studies meant that I got to know Bangladesh, Kenya, Senegal and Ethiopia.

Homesick for Ghana? Then let me show you the prospects you have here! I will help you reintegrate after your return to Ghana.

We have a large network in various regions of the country. This network can help you implement your plans. We advise you in developing your project ideas, support you with training and help with job hunting – even when you have just arrived in Ghana.

I also spent a long time in Germany and completed my studies there. Then I returned to Ghana. This is how I know the questions you will have and can give you expert help – in Twi, Borno, Dangbe, English, Ewe and German.

Encouraging exchange

Twice I left Ghana for Europe, twice I returned. Thanks to the Ghanaian-German Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (GGC) I now have an optimistic outlook for my future.

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.
