Mission and Goals

Starfish Greathearts Foundation is an international development charity, aiming to bring life, hope and opportunity to children in southern Africa who have been orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. We believe that everyone can make a very real difference to the lives of these children.

How Your Contribution Helps

The prevalence rate of people in South Africa infected with the HIV virus that causes AIDS has risen to 10.6% from 10.5% in 2010 and a total of 5.38 million people are infected with the virus, according to Stats SA. The country has an estimated 2.01 million "AIDS orphans" and 380,500 people are expected to be infected with HIV this year.

More than 90% of these children will not have HIV. They will have the potential to grow up and contribute to South African society. If these orphaned and vulnerable children are not cared for, nurtured and educated, they will become a lost generation.

Our goal is to build a global community of individuals and their institutions who, through their time, talents and resources, aim to secure the future of these children. We hope to achieve this by building the capacity of community-based organisations across South Africa to meet the basic needs of children in their own communities.

Instead of being overwhelmed by the magnitude of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, we believe that everyone can make a very real difference to the lives of these children, helping them - one child at a time.

Starfish has a vision of a brighter future for these children and you can help make this a reality!

Testimonial

"I volunteer with and donate part of my allowance to Starfish Canada because it gives me a chance to help children in Africa who have so little. I used EchoAge for my last birthday party. Half of my birthday money went to a great cause and half of the money allowed me to buy Lego. It made me feel great to be able to do this."
Conor, Age 11
