 About Us

Since you arrived in Ghana, how many times have you actually said to yourself?

-    “I am upset to have learned about this event too late – word of mouth really is too unreliable”
-    “I wish someone could have helped my family move and settle in Accra, especially with finding the right accommodation”
-    “I feel isolated and wish I had ways to exchange with and meet more expatriates”
-    “Where can I get news, advice and information that concern me as a foreigner in Ghana?
-    “Why am I hanging out with people from my own country only?”
-    “Who can I contact when I have questions or problems?”
-    “How can I inform other expatriates of events I organize and news that concern them?”
-     etc.

Welcome to .com

Launched in May 2010, our dedicated website aims to:
- be home to and the communication point for all members and groups of Ghana’s expatriate community,
- assist all newcomers in settling in Ghana as smoothly and rapidly as possible and,

Home -     where you go for relevant services, assistance and information, to communicate to the community, to stay updated & make your life in Ghana easier & more fulfilling.

.com was created and launched by Claude P. Charronneau in 2010.              

Living over 25 years in the USA, Burma, Switzerland, Rwanda, India, Cameroun, Qatar and Libya gave Claude an extensive experience in the life we lead as expatriates.
In addition, his diverse professional background (private sector, embassies, NGO’s,) helped him get a full insight in this lifestyle, as did his multiple social involvements within succesive expatriate communities.
In Burma, Claude was the Editor of the newsletter EXPAT NEWS and organiser of events for expatriates.
