Ghana Federation of Disability Organisations (GFD)

Previously known as the Ghana Federation of the Disabled (GFD) represents over 3 million persons with disabilities in Ghana. It is a civil society organisation which brings together the key organisations of persons with disabilities in Ghana.

GFD champions engagements towards assuring the rights of persons with disabilities to access education, employment, health, economic welfare, recreation, the built environment, justice, information and governance.

We work with our partners to advocate for a legislative regime which is sensitive to all persons with disabilities in Ghana and beyond. In this regard, the GFD facilitated the passage of the Persons with Disability Act, the Mental Health Act, Ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability (UNCRPD) among others.

We continue to engage with our grassroots representatives and duty bearers to eliminate stigmatisation and promote the mainstreaming of gender and children with disability issues in national and international development.

GFD pursues the growth and development of vibrant organisations of persons with disability in Ghana which are supportive to individual persons with disability.
In summary, we advocate for disability inclusive laws, policies and programmes, pursue their implementation and monitor and evaluate the initiatives.
