Reintegration Day Celebration

On Saturday, the 18th of May 2013, BRAVEAURORA reintegrated the last 8 children, which still lived in the Foster Care Community.
The reintegration is not the idea of BRAVEAURORA, but it is a guideline by the Department of Social Welfare (DSW), the Care Reform Initiative, and it is a law in Ghana.
BRAVEAURORA is now a role model in the whole country with the successfull reintegration of all children from the former Guabuliga orphanage - and this was a good reason to celebrate a function!

The 2 weeks before were busy with inviting all guests, preparing food, printing shirts, and organizing the whole event...
Please see some pictures of that function - the Reintegration Day Celebration

 BRAVEAURORA project manager Severin gave the welcome adress, and also gave the audience a brief overview about all projects the NGO is involved.

 As you can also see the press attendance was good. Four different TV stations, plus radio and print were present - and since the function there are clips of the celebration on TV and radio in the whole country.
The children performed a theatre

One family does good things, the other one does not! You can see all the waste lying around.

Also Chief and his elders watched!
