Who we are

Purpose Statement

International Needs Ghana (INGH) is a Christian development organization which began operations in Ghana in 1984 and was officially registered as a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization in October 1987.

We are committed to seeing transformed lives and changed communities through partnerships guided by God’s love and a commitment to holistic development. We seek to achieve this through our integrated thematic approach in promoting community development, with a focus on:

  • Child Rights
  • Education
  • Health
  • Gender & Empowerment
  • Christian Witness

We are part of a global partnership in over 30 countries worldwide and in Ghana our interventions have covered 21 Metropolitan / Municipal / Districts Assemblies, across 5 regions. We operate from our head office in Accra and two operational offices in Winneba and Adidome.


International Needs Ghana is managed by a ten-member Board of Directors with varying backgrounds from the world of business, law, finance and development. The Board meets quarterly to review organizational policies, performance and management of funds.
