Together for self-confident schoolchildren.
WuWIT GmbH supports the Star For Life Foundation in its education programme for school children in poor regions in southern Africa and takes on a three-year class sponsorship.
Due to the overload and shortage of teachers in Africa, teachers are often forced to concentrate exclusively on teaching. Star for Life intervenes here with 60 full-time coaches in 120 public schools, completing the regular school curriculum throughout the school year. Using the SEL (Social Emotional Learning) method, school children are helped to cope with adversity, change and stress and to see themselves as valuable human beings who can achieve anything. Through a combination of inspiring enthusiasm, music and art, psychosocial support, life skills education, HIV literacy and attention to the individual learner, all school children get the support they need.
The goal is to produce high-achieving children with good self-esteem who learn in challenging environments, graduate from high school and go on to successful careers.
