Lööf Foundation are supporting Folweni High School in Umlazi, South Africa, for a three year period as part of the Star for Life school partner program. The goal is to spread awareness among the teenagers about HIV and AIDS, and give them hope for the future through the Star for Life program.
About Star for life:
Star for life is an organization started by entrepreneur Dan Olofsson and his wife Christine after they spent time in northern Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa and were shocked by the impact of HIV and AIDS on the local communities. They started Star for Life to reduce the number of new HIV infections among the young. They developed a program to change the behavior and raise awareness among the young, and to strengthen their self-esteem.
The meaning of the SFL-star:
Yellow – I go for my dreams
Red – AIDS free that´s me
Black – I decide
Green – I am committed
Blue – I make I possible
Two Lööf Foundation Ambassadors have been selected from the Partex Group: Ronja Lundquist from Partex Sweden and Simon Hooper from Partex UK. In addition to these ambassadors, Partex will also be represented by Sophie Lööf part owner of Partex and founder of the Lööf Foundation as well as TorBjörn Lööf part owner of Partex and board member of Lööf Foundation.
During this three year period ambassadors from Partex, along with Partex owners, will be visiting Folweni High school twice. The first time will be in March 2016, at the beginning of the program, and the final time will be after three years to follow up the results.
