Starfish Foundation Charity Profile
Starfish was founded by a group of young friends in a London coffee shop in 2001. The following year, a number of these individuals returned to South Africa and officially launched Starfish in its home country on Freedom Day 2002. The charity has been actively inspiring and mobilising individuals in various fields of influence ever since.
In the last five years, thousands of people across the globe have caught the Starfish vision, contributing to the community-based care that we're providing for 36,036 children in South Africa (as of end of third quarter 2008).
Starfish is registered as a Section 21 company in South Africa (no. 2003/002865/08), as a non-profit organisation (039-447-NPO) and as a public benefit organisation in terms of section 18A of the Income Tax Act No. 930008639.
Starfish Foundation Volunteer Information
A key element of the Starfish mission is to inspire and mobilise a global community of individuals who, through their time, talents, resources and influence, aim to secure the future of children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in South Africa.
Many of you enquire about voluntary work with Starfish community partners, including the possibility of individual placements or work parties. It is not currently possible to arrange such opportunities within the projects, working directly with the children that Starfish supports. Watch this space though, as it is our intention in the near future to be able to offer new exciting opportunities for supporters to see firsthand how Starfish works on the ground.
Starfish Foundation Donation Information
Starfish counts on the humanity and generosity of individuals and organisations. Since 2001, the charity has inspired thousands of individuals and countless organisations worldwide to contribute to its cause.
