Partnerships that make a difference

Becoming a partner

Our work with children and young people is only possible because companies, families and organisations choose to support us as partners. By doing this, you make the world better and make dreams possible. In exchange you gain access to a large network with possible collaborations, on-site visits to our work and reports and greetings from your school, club or clinic. In addition, you have a unique chance to arrange customised client and staff events with the artist duo Triple & Touch and the South African show group Star Choir.

Star for Life is currently working in Namibia, Sweden, Ukraine, Tanzania, East Jerusalem and in South Africa. As a partner of Star for Life, you can choose whether you want to direct your support to a particular country and/or project that is especially close to your heart. Please read more about our economy and how we work with the UN’s global sustainability goals. At Star for Life, we care about both the young people we help and our partners who make this possible.

You are welcome to contact Patric Salmonsson or Elinor Kretz to discuss which type of partnership would suit your company best.

Our partnerships

Business partner

Business partners are the companies that have faithfully supported Star for Life for six years (or more), thereby providing the all important basic support and continuity which makes our work possible.

Shared partnership

Sharing is caring and by split a partnership, private individuals and smaller companies can also contribute to supporting children and young people to take responsibility for their lives and achieve their dreams.

Collaborative partners

There is the opportunity to support our work based on your own ideas and wishes. Perhaps you can finance training in a focus area, deliver computers to a school, arrange a venue for a Star for Life concert or maybe donate toothbrushes or menstrual pads for one of our mobile health clinics? Get in touch with Patric or Elinor with your thoughts.

School partner: High School

In our High Schools, our experienced coaches support older children and young people in learning to take responsibility for their lives, health and sexuality. Through different types of workshops, they learn about puberty, consent and relationships, but also about creative expression, nutrition , sports and entrepreneurship. The goal is independent adults who, out of respect for themselves, each other, and their community, make wise decisions and take responsibility together.

School partner: Primary School

In our Primary Schools, we work to strengthen the younger children’s sense of responsibility and self-esteem. With the support of our coaches and our mascot Jabulani, they learn about everything from hygiene, puberty and dental health to respect for yourself and others. In a safe environment, the children also learn about the private parts of the body and that no one should touch them without permission. Because childhood should be a wonderful time of play, learning and friendship, in Africa too.

Daughters of Africa

In southern Africa, far too many girls are born into a life of discrimination, lack of knowledge and poverty. By supporting a Girls Club through our Daughters of Africa programme, you support the work with girls’ health, sexuality,equality and entrepreneurship. In the long run, you are enabling a generation of independent women.

Mobile Health Units

Star for Life’s mobile health clinics, give young people in southern Africa similar support to that which Swedish children get when they go to the school nurse. Here you can be weighed , measured and have your eyesight checked – but that’s not all. You can also learn about puberty, menstruation, hygiene, and nutrition. This is where we help young people understand consent and cohabitation, sexual and reproductive health, sexually transmitted diseases and HIV and AIDS. In addition, our experienced staff offer healthchecks, psychosocial counselling and distribute menstrual protection (menstrual pads or menstrual cups depending on age /maturity and local conditions, such as access to running water).
