Star For Life team in Namibian continues to inspire, motivate and encourage the young people of Namibia.  The team has been having girls and boys talks as the tools that they use to reach out to learners. This is a heart-to-heart talk with the learners after school hours. These talks are either done by a motivational speaker or by Star for life coaches. The recent girls’ talks were held at Dr Lemmer High in Rehoboth, A.Shipena Secondary in Windhoek and Okahandja Secondary in Okahandja. They changed many lives of learners as some learners wrote testimonies reflecting on the program.
The key topics engaged upon were: Issues of sexuality and HIV/AIDS, self respect and appreciation and dealing with peer pressure. Learners were very happy about the initiative and expressed their gratitude to Star For Life. Amongst the things they learned and gained out of the program were hope, enthusiasm, stronger self-esteem as better than before, information on sexuality and HIV/AIDS, and developed to believe in their abilities.
