They normally say In Africa, old age goes with wisdom and store of
knowledge. However, in Ghana and other parts of the world, ageing is becoming a
problematic in the areas of recognition and honor in public and even at home.
Glory Aged Foundation (GAF) is a registered non-governmental organization

place with activities and support services that would cater to the specific
needs of the aged, those of sixty years and above (60+) in the communities in
Ghana. The Organization addresses the health, social, recreational, and
