Star for Life Ukraine
Star for Life is a Swedish non-profit organisation. Their goal is the continued empowerment of children and teenagers, primarily of school age, through education, coaching and motivational strategies.
Zacco’s support of Star for Life is something that closely aligns with our values and with their recent launch of an initiative in Ukraine.
Star for Life Ukraine are currently working with Ukrainian schoolchildren. The organisation’s ambition is to improve their psychological wellbeing, mental health and self-esteem, and to support the development of IT skills. This cooperation also includes engaging our colleagues in our support. We are organising collections of unused office and IT equipment that can be sent to Ukraine to accompany the financial and equipment donations.
Zacco has previously been a partner of Star for Life in South Africa, having sponsored the Ezakheleni High School in South Africa from 2014 to 2020. Their approach was successful in equipping children and teenagers with the learning and tools necessary to take control of their own lives. Founded in 2005 as the Star for Life Maternity Project, their programme is now available in around 120 schools in South Africa and Namibia.
