Established in 2010 after a devastating earthquake in Haiti, Starfysh is a grassroots movement of folks with the crazy notion that we can turn desperate poverty around and restore dignity and hope to the 100,000 residents of the small island of La Gonave, Haiti.
We were inspired to join them.
Understanding that no one can fix all Haiti’s problems, Starfysh decided to focus on one small island often called the forgotten Haiti. The name, logo, and communications materials used the Starfish Parable as inspiration: "I can’t save all the Starfish that have washed up on the beach, but I can save this one".
Starfysh has been able to build a following of people who provide both financial support and hands-on support in Haiti. The organization is now impacting entire villages in the area of agriculture, education, clean water, health services, and economic development. The communications materials provide transparency and constant feedback to supporters around the world, letting them see and experience the positive change happening throughout the villages of La Gonave, Haiti
What they've accomplished so far:
In just a few short years, Starfysh has been able to accomplish some extraordinary things thanks to the money raised and the support of work teams that have visited the island of La Gonave, Haiti.
