The overall vision for NORSAAC is to empower and improve the quality of life for women, youth and marginalized groups. They seek to do so through active engagement in community and policy-based work within the following areas: Sexual Rights and Reproductive Health; Gender and Governance; Livelihood and Entrepreneurial Development; and Education. If this sounds interesting, you should consider becoming NORSAACs next intern as they are currently searching interns to join them in February 2017.
