Response Network believes that all people possess qualities that can enable them to mobilize and improve their living conditions. Thanks to our partners and volunteers, we are able to offer self-help programs to rural villages and scholarships to young people.
We are a Norwegian registrated organization approved by Innsamlingskontrollen.no This guarantees that our fundraising activities are conducted properly and that the money goes to the purpose stated.

Sports for all
Improving your physical health by exercise is important for a longer life.
In the sports program we work to develop the health and wellbeing for people in the villages. Our partner for this program is Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports (NIF).
The aim for the program is to Create Sports for all.
Response Network runs an education sponsorship program for orphans and vulnerable girls. The girls in the program are called Kubala girls – meaning «the reading girls». Sponsors from two countries, Norway and Sweden, currently help 600 orphaned girls to take part in education in order to improve their knowledge and be more integrated in the community.
Education is a universal right to every child. Building community schools is an extension of the Community school self-help program.
When communities have shown a commitment, established a community school and made the bricks needed themselves, Response Network link them with our partner Academic Work. Academic Work donates the rest of the building materials needed to build a school building, like mortar, bricks, window glass. The villagers then continue to run the project and finish the school building. By letting they build themselves, the villagers increase their knowledge and pride for their facilitation in their community.
Since 2004, the sponsorship from Academic Work has enabled 44 new schools. On average every school has 150 children, which gives about 6700 children an opportunity to education.
