The profits of the Starfish Bakery & Cafe have, since its opening in 2001, covered all administrative overheads, paid rent, utility bills, and the maintenance of the Starfish vehicles. It also provides a relaxing, attractive environment where people can come to enjoy fresh, delicious food with home-baked bread, good coffee, our famous brownies and cookies and find out about the project as a result 100% of donated monies are applied to Projects.
After 6 years of operation our activities are still growing annually. In 2004 we opened Sala Santapheap Massage Center and in 2006 the Starfish wireless internet centre was launched.
Starfish provides employment opportunities for Cambodian people with disabilities, and all outreach workers, bakery/cafe and massage employees suffer from some form of physical disability which makes it difficult for them to obtain meaningful employment elsewhere. We owe a debt of gratitude to our dedicated staff, which over the years has worked tirelessly to make the cafe a success. Without them, the Starfish Bakery and Cafe would not be what it is today.
