Young Ambassadors Programme (YAP) at Banawa

On the afternoon of Friday, 29th January, the YAP took place in Banawa- a village in the  West Mamprusi District in the Northern Region of Ghana. We went together with three children at the ages of 16 and 17. They talked about their experiences through their family life and the joy associated with staying in their extended families. Also three adult members of the extended families joined us. Eklimatu, one of the social workers of Braveaurora introduced and explained the whole project and it's objectives to the people of Banawa. The programme seeks to inform the people about the negative effects of institutional care and giving away children to orphanages.

Later, an officer of the Social Welfare Department of Walewale arrived at the place and talked about the positive effects of reintegrating children into their (extended) families.
Lots of people (32 men, 7 women, 26 children)  from Banawa came to the meeting point and showed interest in the speeches of our staff members.

Volunteers: Jasmin & Melanie
