Indians in Ghana
The Indian Association in Ghana is a organization of resident Indian nationals, a growing community that has been present for decades in the country.
The Indian Association is a registered NGO having its own constitution and incorporated In Ghana. It is a voluntary social organization which promotes the social, educational, economic and cultural welfare of Indians residing in Ghana.
The Indian Association of Ghana has a long colourful history. In 1939, the first ever Indian Merchants Association in West Africa was formed in the ‘Gold Coast’. In fact, this was the first body created in the entire West African Region by Indian traders - Metharam Brothers, Bombay Bazaar, Lilaram Thanwardas, Mahtani Brothers, T. Chandiram, K. Chellaram, Hariram Brothers, Wassiamal Brothers, G. Motiram, Punjabi Brothers and D. P. Motwani. These were the founding members of what our Indian Association is today, and they elected Mr. K. W. Mahtani as their first President, and Mr. N. T. Daswani as their first Secreatary. The Constitution and by-laws were carefully drafted years later by Mr. P. K. Mahtani and Mr. Heman Dadlani.
The same Constitution is still in force, though it has been amended in the year 2000, and further amended in the year 2006, to suit the present times. The Indian Association is now presided by Mr. Ahsok Mohinani.
The Indian Association is involved in the organization of events such as the annual Desi Mela and Diwali celebrations.
