At Starfish, we are driven by the question "How far can she go?"
We know that when a girl learns from highly trained educators, receives support for herself and her family from a local mentor, is nourished physically and emotionally, and has access to opportunities to grow and explore, she will be able to realize her infinite impact. In 2017 we took the bold leap to address the low quality of education available to indigenous young women in rural Guatemala by opening the Starfish Impact School. The school combines rigorous academic curriculum with a mentorship program that delves into topics such as reproductive health, human rights, and civic engagement, and a network of support that continues even after she has graduated from high school. By investing in Girl Pioneers, Starfish is creating a generation of leaders who are breaking cycles of poverty in their families within in one generation and launching initiatives for transformational change in their communities.
Starfish strives to be an efficient organization that keeps overhead costs to a minimum and reduces the impact we create by printing. We will send you a PDF recognition letter to the email address you provide if you would like a paper version, please let us know and we will happily put one in the mail for you.
