Defining STAR Leadership

Exposing young leaders to a culture that teaches them to put the needs of others before their own while expressing ambition, vision and desire towards a meaningful cause.

Great leaders are identified by the value they put into the process of achieving a goal. SLA trains young leaders to push beyond what they think they are capable of doing.

Thriving to raise African leaders who stand by the outcomes of their choices, decisions, behaviours and actions in all situations or circumstances they are involved in.

Developing positive change makers who are willing to take blames and find ways to construct sustainable solutions for the betterment of our African societies.
