Break the Cycle
NorSA’s holistic approach ensures that we reach children on all levels and that they are afforded ample opportunities to develop to their full potential.
All the children we are involved with, have the potential to make a success of their lives.
They however need us to invest in their lives and to provide them with the necessary opportunities.
The sustaining of these programmes is of utmost importance as it proves to break the negative, destructive cycle.
Each donor and contributing organization is touching the life of a child and is investing in the future of a child who has the potential, but lacks the opportunities. .
