Our Mission

The Orphaned Starfish Foundation creates lasting change in the lives of orphans throughout Latin America by helping them develop vocational skills.

We believe enabling them with these skills allows them to permanently overcome the cycle of poverty and abuse.

What We Do

The Orphaned Starfish Foundation was founded in 2001 on the belief that education is the key to escaping the poverty trap.

The Orphaned Starfish Foundation partners with orphanages and homes for impoverished children throughout Latin America. The orphanages provide a refuge and safe haven for the children, and The Orphaned Starfish Foundation funds the construction and operation of vocational training facilities. This can include furnishings, required equipment, trainer salaries, and job placement services.

All of our programs specifically focus on providing the children with technology training so that they will be able to provide for themselves and grow into successful adults.
