Providing health services, nutrition, education and
support to South Africa's most vulnerable children
“Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.”
– Nelson Mandela
Education changes destiny. Starfish believes in the importance of education, particularly in a child’s first 1000 days. 18,000 children have benefitted from education in early childhood development centers.
We provide proper nutrition to impoverished children, ensuring improved childhood growth, development, and health.
92,000 children have received nutritional support.
We ensure impoverished and remote communities have access to primary health services via our Wellness Wagon program . 25,000 children have received health care services and 62,000 people anti retro-virals and adherence support through our mobile clinic.
We help create stronger communities by building community development centers, upgrading school facilities, initiating agricultural programs and investing in community health.
We identify, monitor and protect vulnerable children from abuse. Adolescents are empowered through education to resist gender-based violence and protect themselves from HIV/AIDS.
