Grameen Ghana is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) legally registered and licensed to operate as a national Non-Profit Organization (NPO) in Ghana. The organization was originally established in 2001 as a capacity building institution known as Centre for Employment and Resource Management. However, the name of the organization was later changed to Grameen Ghana to reflect its new mandate following restructuring and development of new programmes. 

The founders of the organization were inspired by the desire to empower individuals and communities to overcome poverty, hunger and disease which deteriorated quality of live and dignity of people in Northern Ghana following series of violent conflicts in the 1990s that claimed many lives and destabilized the socio-economic activities of people in the area. Beginning with women’s economic empowerment and improving health and nutrition outcomes, Grameen Ghana has grown its programmes to include agriculture and food security, education and youth development, and governance.
