We are Stars From All Nations

Our Exceptional Story

Our story began in a little classroom at Radford University, Ghana, in late 2013. Our founder, Tom-Chris Emewulu, was in his second year of a B.Sc. degree when he read a report stating that of all 66,000 students who graduate in the country, only 3% could find formal employment within one year.

With a desire to change the narrative and armed with his experience of building a thriving retail business before college, he invited his friends to join forces with him in bridging education and employment to empower. As they embarked on this journey, they uncovered a much broader challenge:

Youth unemployment is a significant challenge in Ghana and the entire continent. Although there have been tremendous improvements in Africa’s economic activities, the challenge lies in integrating young people into the workforce. There is a big disconnect because even as Africa’s economy expands and domestic demand increases, youth employment has not.

Hence, we saw a need for an Africa-focused, globally-minded social enterprise that helps young people to discover themselves and act as catalysts to inspire others to live their lives on their terms. SFAN (Stars From All Nations®) was, therefore, established with the precise vision of raising the next generation of African leaders.

Our target audience represents 60% of Africa’s population, and this number will keep growing. Studies have shown that by 2030, 75% of all people under 35 will be African. Our goal is to create frameworks that can help this target audience live to their best potential and excel in life.

Our Strategic Goals

Economic Prosperity

According to World Vision, extreme poverty is increasingly concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa. About 40% of the region's people live on less than $1.90 a day. We seek to spur economic prosperity in Africa by helping young people unlock their potentials.

Quality Education

Nearly 20 percent of Ghanaian companies recruit only internationally for digital skills, mainly because they cannot find skilled local talent. We’re changing this trend by equipping Africa's young geniuses with skills and helping them live on their terms.

Decent Work & Economic Growth

Ghana is faced with 12% youth unemployment and more than 50% underemployment, both higher than overall unemployment rates in Sub-Saharan African countries. Our frameworks help young Ghanaians to launch fulfilling careers in high-growth companies.
