The passion behind Auksano’s very existence and the basis for all we do and undertake is the desire to assist and guide people, especially youths, in such a manner that they take their place in society as good, upstanding and contributing adults, no matter what they were involved in or are ignorant about. The rippling effect of this approach is astounding in families and the community and ensures sound, healthy and contributing families, which acts as the back bone of a moral society.

Auksano was founded in 1995 and registered with the Department of Social Development in 1999. Three of the four founding members are still part of Auksano with two of them still serving on the Management Board, indicating the commitment and passion of all persons involved with Auksano.

Auksano’s founding was due to a need in society for specialists who could handle and assist victims of destructive subcultures. Although the initial focus was destructive occult involvement, the mission expanded over time.

A serious need for assistance of substance abuse emerged. This need also involved social assistance and counselling of the family of the involved youth. ?Prevention will always be better than cure and will therefore definitely be part of any of our substance programmes.

Auksano’s physical premises include facilities for counselling, training, group sessions, play therapy and administrative tasks.

Auksano currently incorporates three divisions, namely:

  • Trauma and Destructive Sub-culture Division
  • Addiction Division
  • ITR ?(recently added)
