STARFISH PROJECT EMPOWERS WOMEN THROUGH:
FACILITATING VOCATIONAL TRAINING
As part of its commitment to holistic care and growth, every woman at Starfish Project receives vocational training. Women are encouraged to grow in their skills and responsibilities in the business in areas such as production, marketing, inventory and stock-keeping. In-house literacy and English language classes are provided throughout the week. Born into poverty, many of the women at Starfish only completed very low levels of schooling, are limited in their native language ability, and face immense challenges in the working world. Starfish Project provides literacy education as needed, and today all women are literate in their native language. Many are even becoming proficient in English. Women can receive educational grants to undertake more specific vocational training classes like photography and graphic design. Our goal is for the women at Starfish Project to be professional, hirable, and able to pursue their dreams.
