About Us


GPNA was founded by Davidson Kwame Zigah after years of life experiences in Ghana and in the United States of America. When he arrived in the U.S in 2007, he started discussing GPNA’s vision with like-minded Professionals where most of them embraced. With the support of likeminded Professionals, and the counseling of those who have tried but failed, GPNA was founded in March 2015 as a solutions-oriented nonprofit organization to provide a platform to promote professionalism in the Ghanaian and African community across North America. Under the core values of Unity, Support, and Success we seek to provide mentorship, education, networking, and investment opportunities for Ghanaian professionals, investors, and students in North America, Africa, and Ghana. We also believe in giving back to our immediate environment to honor the towns and cities across North America that have embraced us. Therefore, in keeping with GPNA’s core values of Unity, Support, and Success let us unite as a community to support each other to guarantee our success. Success is measured by the impact we make on others, not only on our academic and professional accomplishments. Wealth cannot only be measured by the level of our bank accounts but how we positively impact others.
