Star for life
Making Dreams come true
Sigma Technology regularly takes part in activities that contribute to a sustainable future, by supporting innovation and development through education.
We accomplish these tasks in close cooperation with universities by driving innovation, through exchange programs, and on a voluntary basis as teachers.
We open up doors for students and give them an opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, future and promising industry or simply to get a competitive skill in a certain area.
We also actively support the younger generations by sponsoring a school in South Africa as part of the Star for Life program. The school fights the spread of HIV and provides a unique level of education.
Sigma Technology also sponsors the most promising students, enabling them to access higher education.
As a proud sponsor of Star for Life, a unique program aimed at preventing the spread of HIV and AIDS among young people in South Africa and Namibia, we have a unique opportunity to give children in South Africa a better future.
Star for Life was created in 2005 by Christin and Dan Olofsson, owner of the Sigma Group, and now involves more than 300,000 young people and their families in South Africa and Namibia.
Sigma Technology has been an active partner in the Star for Life program since 2014 by taking responsibility for our own school, Mmemezi High School, which is located 35 km north of Hluhluwe. The Mmemezi High School has over 400 students.
We have invited two employees from Sigma Technology to volunteer to be ambassadors at the ceremony. The Star for Life ambassadors will act as a bridge between Sigma Technology and the school ambassadors at Mmemezi High School, and will also be a spokesperson for our organization in 2015. The visit to South Africa gave the ambassadors the opportunity to meet and build relations with students and the organization at the Star For Life School.
