The Starfish Parable

One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.

Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing.
Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”.

The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said,
“I made a difference to that one!”

Below, some of the Starfish Project women pose with signs of their proud achievements and benefits. The women’s stories are incredibly inspiring and we are proud to partner with Starfish Project to help make the world a better and more fair place.

fair-trade-against-human-trafficking

100 women have graduated from the Starfish Project program so far and now live independently. 42 women are currently enrolled in the program. Starfish Project is only one of two anti-human trafficking organizations in their country and the only one in their city where an estimated 200,000 people have been trafficked. While their progress has been small in terms of shear numbers, their impact is huge for the women they work with. 

Mission

Starfish Project’s mission is to restore hope to exploited women throughout Asia by providing stable, alternative employment, safe communal living, access to healthcare, counseling and education.

Starfish Project aims to build trust among women who have been devalued and mistreated. They work dedicatedly, sometimes for months, building relationships with exploited women so that they can again feel safe to laugh, love and live their lives to the fullest.

Impact

Since 2007, Starfish Project has sheltered women who have escaped exploitation. Starfish Project actively builds relationships with women trapped in exploitation and provides free room and board in a shelter when they are able to leave their situation. The women create beautiful jewelry in order to earn a salary. Their work provides them with renewed hope in their unique talents and their self-sufficient communal living proves the resilience of their spirits.
