Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower Gambian girls by providing them with an advanced education that is focused on service to humanity while at the same time providing international service-learning opportunities for our volunteers.

Description

Starfish International is dedicated to transforming the lives of Gambian girls, their families, their communities, and their nation through education and service. We provide international service-learning opportunities for our volunteers to support this work by sharing their skills and areas they are passionate about with the girls we serve. Starfish International runs one of the only children's libraries in The Gambia and holds educational summer programs for Gambian girls. Our goal is to establish a state of the art Academy of Excellence that will provide the Gambian girl-child an exceptional education from pre-school to graduate school. Every participant in this endeavor, including administrators, teachers, volunteers, and students, will be motivated by the end goal of service to humanity and challenged to find effective ways of infusing service to others into their daily work.
