The Social Welfare Department of Ghana and Ghana’s Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection announced a temporary closure of intercountry adoption from Ghana in June 2013. On January 1, 2017, the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-Operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Convention) entered into force for Ghana. FBA is licensed to facilitate adoptions from Ghana. Information about the new Hague program will be updated on our website as it becomes available.
