Overview

BRAVEAURORA currently supports the village of Guabuliga in the North of Ghana with several projects regarding village-development. The initial project was the "Reintegration“ of the village's orphans into their existing family-structures.


BRAVEAURORA wants to offer all children in Guabuliga perspectives for the future, not just the orphans. This is why projects in the areas of Education, Health, Social Infrastructure, Livelihood-Promotion and Environment are offered.
