We empower young
people to dare to dream

Star for Life is a non-profit organization that works with schoolchildren in southern Africa. Through a unique educational programme, Star for Life coaches strengthen students’ self-esteem and motivate them to invest in their education and make wise life decisions. In this way, they can build a better future and, as adults, contribute to a more equal, fair and sustainable society.

Star for Life was founded in 2005 and the programme is currently available in 120 schools in South Africa and Namibia.

Our Vision

A future in which young people are empowered to realize their dreams as responsible members of caring communities.

Our Mission

To inspire young people to value learning, acquire the knowledge and skills they need for productive work and live healthy and meaningful lives.
