UN INFORMATION CENTRE – ACCRA
The UN Information Centre in Accra, Ghana, is among a network of field offices linking DPI Headquarters in New York to Member States. The Centre was transferred to Accra in March 1958 from Monrovia, Liberia, at one time covering all countries in the West African sub-region. Presently, it serves Ghana. http://accra.sites.unicnetwork.org
University of Ghana French Club
The University of Ghana French Club (UGFC) is arguably the most popular departmental association in the Nation’s Premier University. Driven by an insatiable passion for the French Language and Francophone Culture, members of UGFC clearly stand out among other University of Ghana students.
The main aim of UGFC is to serve its members with diverse platforms to practice French and appreciate the French culture. Five paths lead to this aim; they are known in French parlance as “ateliers” which literally translates into the English word for “workshops”. Each atelier aims at exploring the dynamism of popular aspects of French Culture; namely Dance, Music, Drama, Poetry, and Current Affairs. Over the years, UGFC has been able to carve a niche for itself as the top student association in the promotion of French in Ghana; leading it into winning the 2018 Departmental Association of the Year at the University of Ghana SRC Awards.
Proudly, UGFC has pioneered several campaigns to popularise French, the most recent and most successful of which being the ”Ghana in French High School Tour”. The Club’s visits to High Schools across the Greater Accra Region aimed at sensitizing the youth about the benefits of pursuing French to very high levels.
The Club’ slogan, “Le Français, C’est notre affaire!” which literally translates into “French is our Business” signifies its readiness to make the language of love appealing to all, especially in Ghana.
UGFC has partnered with GIMUN to enhance the diplomatic experience of delegates and officials from francophone countries within the sub-region. Through this partnership, language will no longer be a barrier to participation at GIMUN.
