Queen Silvia attended a Christmas benefit concert in Stockholm on December 18th for the Star School project, an African-Swedish school project. Many well-known Swedish musicians participated in the concert, as well as a South African school choir.

The main purpose of the Star School project is to help high school students live an aids-free life and strengthen their self-esteem. About 40,000 students take part in projects in schools throughout South Africa and Namibia.
