Want to be part of the fun?

NAWA membership is open to women of all nationalities.

We invite you to join us and enjoy the many cultural, philanthropic and social opportunities available to members:

  • Monthly meetings with interesting speakers
  • Organized local cultural excursions
  • Coffee mornings, lunch groups and Girls Night Outs – to socialize and make new friends
  • The opportunity to support the local community through our philanthropic projects work.

Our 2016/2017 membership season runs from 1 September 2016 to 31 August 2017. New members are welcome at any time during the season.

North American women (US, Canada and Mexico) join as full members, and non-North American women join as associate members. The only difference being that North American members may vote in the annual board elections. The President of NAWA must be a North American. Half of the elected Board must be North American and North Americans must remain the largest nationality within NAWA.

Upon expressing interest to our Director of Membership regarding securing a NAWA Membership (nawaghanamembership@gmail.com), you shall receive further information about upcoming events where you can pay your membership dues and complete the registration process. Your annual membership dues may be paid at any NAWA event. After paying your dues will you be added to our mailing list, to receive NAWA emails.

NAWA sends two emails every week with NAWA and community information:

  • The “What’s Up In Accra” email shares information on current and upcoming events in Ghana
  • The “Classified Ads” shares items for sale, classes being offered, domestic staff available for work and more.

You shall also have the opportunity to join the NAWA Facebook group, which is only available to NAWA season members. This forum allows quick interaction with other members if you wish.

Membership dues are used solely for operational expenses related to programs for members and administrative activities. Revenue generated from fundraising, such as the No Worries book, all goes to funding our humanitarian project work. Members must pay their membership dues before being considered a member.

Membership fees are non-refundable and all memberships for the 2015/2016 Season will expire on 31 August 2016. The new 2016/2017 Membership seasonal will commence on 01 September 2016.

Membership fees for the 2015/2016 season will be as follows:

Renewing 2014/15 Season members:

We look forward to welcoming you to our NAWA family and our upcoming 2015/2016 season.

Your support and humanitarian projects

NAWA exists because of members volunteering their time to make things happen. There are many ways to get involved, from organizing events, to helping with humanitarian projects, assisting newcomers, No Worries Guide book and much more. No commitment is expected however, please consider how you can help.

Past members have remarked, upon leaving Ghana, that there time here was so much more rewarding, as a result of their involvement with NAWA.

Interest Groups

NAWA has a large selection of interest groups. These are ever changing and depending on who is currently in town and willing to head them up. If you feel you would like to start your own interest group please let a member of our Board know and we will be happy to assist you in getting a few members to join in the fun.
