About Sports Talent Africa

Africa has previously faced a scourge of HIV/AIDs crisis that has rendered so many children orphans, needy and helpless. A number of such children and youths are however endowed with great talents in sports – which goes for both girls and boys, by which special skills they can not only survive as responsible citizens but also elevate the socio-economic status of their own communities and families.

With our focus and orientation on sports, Sports Talent Africa (STAR) stepped-up in early 2009 to cover a missing link between identification, development and actualisation of children and youth dreams through sports.

With a main focus upon soccer, STAR has grown to recruit, train and expose over 870 children and youths to greater national and international sports arenas thereby brining their dreams closer and closer to reality.

We aim to improve the nation’s socio-economic status through support and development of sports talents thereby enhancing our communities in social, health, education, nutrition, economic, spiritual and proper development aspects as far as standard of living is concerned. 

We humbly welcome you at our website, and ultimately at STAR! Feel free to contact us for inquiry, support, donations, involvement into our programs, especially the pre-tournament trainings and matches and also the annual 3 major tournaments.
