About Ghana Stammering Association
People who stammer (PWS) have been a source of teasing, ridicule, and misunderstanding for a very long time in many parts of the world, and Ghana is no exception.
However, whilst there is now much awareness and education about the impact of teasing, ridiculing, and poor understanding of PWS through International Stammering Awareness Days (ISAD), instituted by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and other similar campaigns, many countries, particularly in Africa, continue to have little or no support mechanisms for PWS.
There had never been any group taking care of their needs or educating the public about stammering and its impact on those affected. The Ghana Stammering Association (GSA) was started in 2013 to meet the needs of PWS and to educate the public about stammering.
To be the support centre for people to live successful lives in an environment that openly embraces people who stammer.
To promote stammering awareness and offer assistance to all whose lives are affected by stammering.
The Ghana Stammering Association values are guiding principles that shape the organization's operations and activities.

My name is Fatima Issahaku, and I'm from Tamale. In July, while browsing online, I came across iStammer webapp that caught my attention. So I decided to give it a try. Since I've always been interested in therapy, I thought it was a good opportunity to experiment on myself. Stammering made me hesitant to pursue certain activities due to fear and shyness, but as I grew up, I realized that my existence shouldn't revolve solely around my disability. Consequently, I started discussing it with friends and family about the webapp, which helped me become more at ease with it.
My name is Isaac Mensah, and I'm a student at the University of Education, Winneba, while also pursuing further studies in Suhum. In August, I came across some information on the main page and decided to log in. I found two or three pieces of information available, and among the options provided, there were two choices: face-to-face therapy and online therapy, which is conducted virtually. Due to my busy schedule, I opted for the online therapy. The process of getting matched with a therapist was straightforward.
