The ideal approach to ACE's is preventative and focuses on reducing the sources of stress in individuals lives, whether basic needs like food, housing, and diapers, or more entrenched sources of stress, like community crime, discrimination, or poverty. The DO MORE FOUNDATION directs their activities to this preventative approach in order to create better tomorrow for the young children of SA.
Can’t go to work? Schools closed? Worried about money? It is normal to feel stressed and overwhelmed. School shutdown is also a chance to make better relationships with our children and teenagers. One-on-One time is free and fun. It makes children feel loved and secure, and shows them that they are important
