We provide specialized vocational and educational training for every woman and girl at Starfish Project, first through our computer, literacy, and English classes provided onsite, and then at specialized training schools throughout the city that offer training in higher level skills. This gives women in our program the opportunity to develop the skills they need to achieve high-level success and escape the risk of being re-trafficked in the future.
Through providing opportunities for vocational training certifications and testing, you are helping to give women and girls at Starfish Project the opportunity to receive a professional certification through the Microsoft Corporation. This is often the first time that women in our program have ever received a certification and have been acknowledged for an academic achievement. This is not only beneficial for their professional growth but builds their sense of self-worth.
