Starlights Creative Club

The IACTM FoundationWhat counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
– Nelson Mandela

Starlights Creative Club (SCC) was founded by Naomi Kieswetter to drive humanitarian initiatives with the purpose of creating joy in the hearts of those who are met with daily challenges; individuals in emotional and physical pain who often struggle to survive every day.

SCC’s intention is to combine the efforts of a group of women, including women who themselves are resident in old aged homes by putting their hands together in labours of love making items which have been crocheted, knitted and hand stitched.

Our mission is to:

  • Share our love
  • Use our own inner resources to create
  • Give to those who are in need
  • Create, to play and to bring joy
