NORSAAC is an empowerment for change organization committed to women and young people in Ghana’sNorthern Region.
Dedicated to championing an improved quality of life for empowered women, youth, and marginalized groups asserting their rights, NORSAAC actively engages in community and policy-based work in the following four areas: Sexual Rights and Reproductive Health, Gender and Governance, Livelihood and Entrepreneurial Development, and Education.
Our Approach to Empowerment for Change
NORSAAC works closely with communities, community structures, and target groups to empower individuals in asserting their rights through increasing their knowledge-base and widening the depth of information made accessible.
The organization further engages these groups, along with additional stakeholders, to influence community-level change. These changes come in the form of: 1) provision of quality services; 2) altering community norms, beliefs and practices; and, 3) influencing gatekeepers of the decision-making process in homes, communities and formal structures. NORSAAC commits itself to these changes in so to recognize the rights of women and youth who participate in decision-making processes that directly affect them as individuals.
NORSAAC works in collaboration with government and non-government stakeholders to influence policy change in favor of those negatively affected. Through the organization's direct work with communities and districts throughout the northern region, it is able to identify gaps in policy, or policy inefficiencies, that are affecting this target group.
