The mission of the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) is to strengthen the capacity of our members to contribute to achieving Justice, Unity, Reconciliation and Integrity of Creation among various sectors of Ghanaian society and provide a forum for joint action on issues of common interest.


Established in 1929, CCG has over the years been very involved in social issues both through research and advocacy programmes to promote national development. CCG is the voice of the voiceless in the society and work with many marginalized, displaced and vulnerable population in Ghana be serving the needs of these persons. To achieve its mandate CCG works with various partners both locally and international. As part of its humanitarian mandate, CCG is in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in providing assistance to Refugees in Ghana. Through this partnership CCG seek to promote the wellbeing of refugees living in urban areas particularly in Accra including education, health, livelihood and promotion of their rights. As part of measures to ameliorate the Urban Refugee Program, CCG in collaboration with UNHCR have resolved to implement the Urban Refugee Community Center Programme.

A Refugee Community Centre is a safe and public place where women, men, boys and girls of diverse backgrounds can meet for social events, recreation, education and livelihood programs, information exchange, and other purposes. They are established with the main objective of empowering refugee and host communities and providing them with a forum to promote their participation in decisions that affect their lives. Community centers can be an important community-based protection tool with the potential to yield protection results for refugees living in urban areas. Ghana hosts at least 3,000 refugees and asylum seekers in Accra residing in diverse locations in the city which challenges efforts to reach out to all and establish strong refugee community ties. An urban community center will provide a safe space for refugees to gather and exchange ideas and concerns and act as a catalyst for initiatives and innovations by refugees. Having access to a wide variety of services and programs that cater for the needs of urban refugees in the same location is particularly convenient for refugees.
