Zambian Gems supports our partners Starfish International in the Gambia. Starfish’s mission is to empower Gambian girls by providing them with an advanced education that is focused on service to humanity. Using a bespoke training programme, Starfish has been able to help hundreds of Gambian girls achieve their full potential in their lives.
Zambian Gems provides support for Starfish’s Craft Programme, where the girls learn handicraft skills and business skills that might support them as entrepreneurs and income generators for their families in the future.
At present, four Starfish students attend medical school; two attend nursing school and two are becoming lawyers.
