Starfish aims to bring life, hope and opportunity to children made orphaned or vulnerable in South Africa. Motivated by our founding parable, Starfish believes that each of us can make a difference to the lives of these children.
Starfish supports 16 000 children through 35 community-based organisations!
Starfish builds the capacity of local communities to better manage Child Protection, Health and Education support programmes for children orphaned or vulnerable.
Child Protection: Keep children safe from neglect, abuse, stigma, discrimination, exploitation and to ensure that they have citizen documents
Health: Safeguard the health and wellbeing of children, by improving access to health care services, food and nutrition
Education: Provide children access to Early Childhood Development and basic education, and skills development to older children for
You can help, one child at a time. Host a Dinner of Hope or even an Art auction, race as a Greatheart for a cause or set up a monthly donation to secure the future of the children we support.
Starfish believes in the power of stories, inspired by the real life stories of the children of South Africa. It is our privilege to help make their dreams come true.
