 About Us


Since you arrived in Ghana, how many times have you actually said to yourself?

-    “I am upset to have learned about this event too late – word of mouth really is too unreliable”
-    “I wish someone could have helped my family move and settle in Accra, especially with finding the right accommodation”
-    “I feel isolated and wish I had ways to exchange with and meet more expatriates”
-    “Where can I get news, advice and information that concern me as a foreigner in Ghana?
-    “Why am I always hanging out with people from my own country?”
-    “Who can I contact when I have questions or problems?”
-    “How can I inform other expatriates of events I organize and news that concern them?”
-     etc.

expat.com
  is the brainchild of its editor, Claude Charronneau.              

Living over 20 years in the USA, Burma, Switzerland, Rwanda, India, Cameroun and Libya gave Claude an extensive experience in the life we lead as expatriates. 

In addition, his diverse professional background (private sector, embassies, NGO’s,) helped him get a full insight in that lifestyle, as did his multiple social involvements within succesive expatriate communities. In Burma, Claude was editor of the newsletter EXPAT NEWS and organiser of expatriates’ events.
