Sustainable Waste Management

Dealing with waste not only pollutes the environment, but also the wildlife. The burning of plastic pollutes the air and people complain of respiratory problems and burning eyes.

Infirmary

BRAVEAURORA sees the benefits of having children growing up in their families and believes that it is better to grow up with their own parents, close relatives, or proper foster parents than in institutions. The opening of new orphanages in Ghana is prohibited by law, as the de-institutionalization and reintegration of orphans in family structures...
