THE DAUGHTERS OF AFRICA PROJECT (DOA)

The Daughters of Africa (DoA) Project is a project that aims to instill hope for the future of
young people in Namibia and South Africa through training in health, motivation, livelihood,
and strengthening South Africa (S.A) and Namibia’s future development. The project is being
implemented by two (2) strategic partners, Hand in Hand Zimbabwe (HIH), an enterprise
development-oriented organization and Star for Life (SFL) which has extensive experience in
motivational and health awareness. Hand in Hand Sweden offers technical support for the
project. Star for Life is responsible for the project monitoring, reporting and is accountable
to the project sponsor. Technical support is also provided by the Star for Life Sweden and
S.A particularly in the implementation and monitoring of the motivation, health and
entrepreneurship component of the young men and women in the project. The DoA project
will eventually contribute to sustainable socio-economic development in South Africa and

Namibia through the following target areas, reducing girls and young women’s risk of
violence and sexual exploitation, strengthening their control over their sexual and
reproductive health and Creating opportunities to secure economic independence for young
women.
To achieve the desired result, DoA has adopted a customized training to strengthen the
school children’s self-confidence in entrepreneurship both in Namibia and South Africa.
