The Ewe Association of Washington DC Metro Inc. celebrated their 40th Anniversary on Saturday, 22nd June, 2024, in Maryland. The theme for the occasion was “Uniting Generations Through Leadership and Development”.

In attendance were the Ambassador of Ghana to the USA, Her Excellency Alima Mahama (Hajia), a Maryland State Delegate with the Democratic Party, Bernice Mireku-North, the President of the Council of Ewe Associations of North America (CEANA) Dr. Tsatsu Nyamadi, the President of the Council of Ghanaian Pastors and Churches (COGPAC) Bishop Dr. Glover, the President of the Council of Ghanaian Associations (COGA) in the Washington DC Metro Area Mr. Henry Adu, Chiefs and Queen mothers of the Ewe Traditional Area and many sons and daughters of Eweland.

The Association was founded in the early 1980s and has been one of the most established members of CEANA, contributing immensely over the years, financially and otherwise, and helping CEANA complete many projects in the Volta and Oti Regions of Ghana, as well as in Togo and Benin.

The Guest of Honour, Her Excellency Alima Mahama noted that Ghana is blessed to have such committed groups with the purpose of uniting all for the common good.

She challenged the group to remain united since Ghana is one of the most peace-loving countries among the West- African Region. Hajia Alima Mahama commended the Association’s dedication at preserving the Ewe culture, traditions, and values and their efforts at promoting unity and support among its community, especially with their young ones.
