The United Nations Association-Ghana (UNA-GH) was established in 1952.
The Association was originally named Ghana United Nations Association (GUNA) but the name had to be changed to UNITED NATIONS ASSOCIATIONS-GHANA (UNA-GH) to conform to the global naming of UNAs at an Extra-ordinary National Congress held at the National Museum ,Accra,on Saturday 30th November, 2002.
UNA-GH remains the only recognized UN Association in Ghana affiliated with the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA)
The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is the only global organization with the primary mission of supporting the principles and purposes of the United Nations. WFUNA represents and coordinates a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations (UNAs) and their thousands of constituents.
Every UN member state has only one United Nations Association (UNA) which must be affiliated with WFUNA, hence UNA-GH remains the only recognized and legitimate UN Association in Ghana.
UNA-GH has undertaken various programs and projects to promote the UN agenda through its established wings, namely the United Nations Youth Association (UNAYGH), the United Nations Association of Ghana Commission for Women and Children’s Affairs (UNACWCA) and the United Nations Association Artisans Project (UNAAP).
We are calling on all peace-loving, humanitarian, and development-oriented individuals to join the United Nations Association-Ghana, irrespective of their sex, race, creed, religion, and political inclination.
The National Executive body of UNA-GH hereby cautions the Ghanaian people to be wary of fake UN organizations out there deceiving the unsuspecting public.
It is important to further warn that not every organization that claims or uses the UN logo is a genuine UN organization. Therefore, one must do due diligence to be sure that the organization he or she is joining or dealing with is affiliated with the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) or has a partnership with any of the recognized UN organizations.
