Because we can’t build strong communities without attention to social development.
We believe that a solid social foundation is an indispensable necessity for all well-functioning communities. Because of that, AL focuses on fighting social ills like Gender-Based Violence, Child Abuse, Teenage pregnancy and Substance abuse. By making a difference through education, prevention, counselling, personal and community capacity building, outreach and referral networks, we aim to enable impoverished communities to improve their lives by reducing stigma, ignorance, and shame.
Since 2001 AL Organization has been actively working toward this goal and was in 2006 registered as an official NPO based in rural Northern KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Since then, we have been able to reach over 500.000 beneficiaries with our work.
