The Starfish Project was founded in 2000 as a community-based humanitarian organisation. Starfish focuses its activities on facilitating access for Cambodian people in Sihanoukville and neighbouring provinces to existing social services and resources, and providing direct person-to-person assistance when such assistance is not available through governmental or other non-governmental channels.
Starfish is a locally registered NGO (non governmental organization) in Cambodia since 2006.
The Starfish Project relies entirely on private donations from individuals and businesses to perform its activities
The Starfish Bakery & Café was started in 2001 as an income generating project for the Starfish Project. The Starfish Center provides employment opportunities for Cambodian people with disabilities as all outreach workers, bakery/café, internet and massage employees suffer from some form of physical disability which makes it difficult for them to obtain meaningful employment elsewhere. In the Starfish Center visitors can enjoy healthy lunches, delicious pastry and cakes, massage or use our high speed internet.
