What is NorSA?
Investing in the lives of children - NorSA Community Care is a NPO in South Africa and a Designated Child Protection Organization registered by the Department of Social Development in Western Cape, SA (as required in the Children’s Act, Act 38 of 2005).
NorSA was established during 2006 in co-operation with PROCARE and Children of the Word Norway. The main focus of the organization is changing the destiny of families and children in need. NorSA develops, manages and facilitates community based projects investing in the lives of children to ensure that they have ample opportunities to develop to their full potential.
Break the Cycle
"Be the change you want to see in the world" (Ghandi)
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.
