Sigma is a School Partner which means that we at Sigma follow, work with and support our school, Zandlazethu High School, from the beginning to the end of the program. Star For Life gives us a unique opportunity to provide hope-for-the-future for children in South Africa and, as a company, to accept its social responsibility.
The program runs for a period of three years at each school. The methodology is based on mental vaccination of South Africa’s school children between the ages of 12 and 18. Through coaching and education the program strives to strengthen the pupils’ self esteem and get them to take responsibility for their own lives. Heightened self confidence and self esteem give the pupils the possibility to change attitudes and to dare to say no to an early introduction to sex and unprotected sex, and through this curb the spread of HIV/aids.
