Starfish Project

Established in 2006, Starfish Project is a socially-responsible jewelry business supporting women with alternative employment and a range of holistic care services. Starfish Project provides opportunities for women to heal and grow through counseling, vocational training, language acquisition, family education grants and health care access, as well as housing in a women’s shelter.  The Project now operates and offers employment and care to women in three different cities in Asia. Starfish Project is committed to restoring hope for each woman who enters its doors.

This contribution to the cause of disadvantaged women in China was recognised by the Kering Foundation with a Social Entrepreneurs Award in 2015. In addition to a €30,000 grant the Starfish Project will benefit from a 2-year mentoring opportunity led by a Kering Group senior manager.
