The Ghana Friendship groups in Denmark

A Danish NGO

History
People from the Danish towns and villages Silkeborg, Glamsbjerg, Ølgod, and Maribo decided in 1979 to start a different developmental activity in Ghana,  based on friendship contacts and the local wishes and needs. They were inspired by Dr. Johannes Holm, who had made contact with Dr.Abubakr Al-Hassan, who had been studying architecture in Denmark.

Later Århus and Farsø have been added and the overall  organisation is now Ghana Venskabsgrupperne i Danmark (The Ghana Friendship Groups in Denmark)consisting of the four groups: Silkeborg, Glamsbjerg, Farsø, and Århus, and a few individual members all over the country.

The office is in Århus and is manned with a co-ordinator and an assistant. All other work in connection with the programmes is made by voluntary members.

Organisation
The General Assembly and the four annual Common meetings are the suppreme decision makers. The day to day business is administered by an Executive Committee FU and subcommittees for the different programmes, who have the direct contact with the Ghanaian partners and are responsible to  DANIDA, who sponsors most of the  activities.

The annual General Assembly elects the Chairman, the vice-chairman and the treasurer who make up the FU together with representatives from the subcommittees and are responsible to the common meetings and negotiate with DANIDA.
