Starfish Project

Starfish Project’s mission is to restore hope to exploited women in Asia. Through its holistic care programs, Starfish offers formerly exploited women the opportunity to heal their physical and emotional scars through vocational training, healthcare, shelter, counseling, and educational grants.

Since its inception, Starfish has employed over one hundred women and has served thousands of others through its community outreach services. Starfish Project serves women like Mae Lee, whose poverty-stricken mother sold her to traffickers when she was only 15. Mae Lee was enslaved in another country for six years. When she escaped she had no education, no opportunities, and no hope. Starfish Project offered her a new beginning by providing a sustainable income and an education. Mae Lee now sees the beauty of her world as she trains to become a professional photographer.

The Well

The talent and tranquility of The Well artisans belie their astoundingly difficult backgrounds: one was sold into prostitution by her family as a small child; several were teenage bar workers; and another was a single mom with no resources. They have discovered their own innate talents through careful training in Thai arts, and The Well has given them a sense of hope and a positive vision for their futures. Today, these women have dreams of opening their own businesses; becoming doctors, nurses, lawyers, and teachers; and sending their children to school.

Living in fear of their ancestors, the Zulu people of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, continually slaughter cows, goats, and chickens as sacrifices. They even attribute any illness, death, or calamity as a mood of an ancestor’s spirit that requires a sacrifice to appease. But, the people involved in the artisan group Wezandla, meaning “hands” in Zulu, have the opportunity to break free from this slavery. Each item they bead secures a paycheck for their poor families and the hope of freedom from fear.

White Rainbow Project

The White Rainbow Project is transforming lives by sharing love with the widows of India. It provides vocational training, food, and medical care to destitute widows in Vrindavan, India. Vrindavan, known as the City of Widows, is home at least 20,000 widows who have been abandoned by their families. White Rainbow Project is recycling hope for these widows by helping them create beautiful handmade products out of donated saris and old magazines. Recycling takes on a whole new meaning, as this is one of the only options widows have to support themselves. They have been told they have “bad karma” and are blamed for the death of their husband. They are shunned, exploited, and denied any sense of dignity. Earning their own money gives them freedom to choose their own destiny, many for the first time in their life.
