Mission

Starfish brings life, hope and opportunity to children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in South Africa by identifying the very best Community-based organisations and partnering with them to ensure the highest quality care. Last year Starfish supported 22,000 children in 45 community-based organizations throughout South Africa, providing them with access to education, healthcare and child-protection services. We know our model works because we follow the progress, one child at a time. Our work ranges from crisis intervention like food parcels and help obtaining identity documents, to access to education and training, mentorship, and support for income generation activities with the aim of lifting whole communities out of the vicious cycle of poverty and HIV.

Programs

Starfish believes that offering holistic support is the best way to ensure a vulnerable child can enjoy life, hope and opportunity. The support of the community and four key areas of intervention are essential to ensure a brighter view for our children and in turn can lift whole communities out of the vicious cycle of poverty and HIV. 1) Capacity Development 2) Education 3) Healthcare 4) Child Protection. Starfish works closely with grassroots, community-based organizations to deliver these services to children in need.
