Starfish Project restores hope to exploited women in Asia. They provide life-changing opportunities through their Holistic Care Programs and our social enterprise where women create beautiful jewelry and become managers, accountants, graphic designers, and photographers.

Through their Holistic Care Programs, they provide vocational training, healthcare, shelter, counseling, and education grants for their women and their children. Starfish Project has employed over 130 women and has served thousands through our Community Outreach Services. 

I have been fortunate enough to partner with Starfish Project since 2014, providing photography, video, and education to the women they help.

Since 2006, Starfish Project has been restoring hope to women and girls escaping human trafficking and exploitation. In the last few months, we have seen that the girls in brothels are getting younger and younger. We want to offer more women and girls the opportunity to experience freedom at Starfish Project.
