About us


There are an estimated 3,7 million orphans in South Africa. Of these 150,000 live in child-headed homes.

Starfish brings life, hope and opportunity to children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in South Africa. We identify the very best community-based organizations and partner with them to bring health, education and protection to orphans.

Join us and transform lives. Every cent brings change!
