Project Starfish : Why the Name?

AS A CHILD, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN VERY MOTIVATED ABOUT THE “STARFISH STORY”. HERE IS WHY?

– WE ALL KNOW PROBLEMS EXIST; BUT NOTHING HAPPENS UNTIL WE THINK ABOUT SOLUTIONS.
– WE ALL THINK, WHATEVER WE DO INDIVIDUALLY HAS NEARLY NO TANGIBLE IMPACT ( AND THAT’S WRONG )
– PERSPECTIVE IS EVERYTHING.
– WE ALL WANT TO DO GOOD, PROBLEM IS WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DO IT.

WE NAMED THE ORGANIZATION AS PROJECT STARFISH SIMPLY BECAUSE WE FELT HELPING OTHERS GET BACK TO WORK WAS VERY SIMILAR TO THE STORY OF THROWING STARFISH BACK INTO THE OCEAN. SOLUTIONS IN LIFE ARE FOCUSED AT THE INDIVIDUAL LEVEL. EACH ONE HELP ONE MODEL.

SO, WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

THE PROJECT STARFISH MODEL OF SENDING PEOPLE BACK TO THE WORKFORCE WORKS. IT IS A REPEATABLE MODEL THAT PRODUCES SUCCESS, AFTER SUCCESS, AFTER SUCCESS. IT JUST WORKS.

THE VISION OF PROJECT STARFISH IS TO SCALE. BEYOND BORDERS. BEYOND RACE, RELIGION, CASTE, CREED ETC ETC AND TRULY CREATING A PLATFORM WHERE PEOPLE HELP EACH OTHER TO SPRINGBOARD WITH OPPORTUNITIES.

TILL DATE IN THE LAST 5 YEARS, WE HAVE NEVER ACCEPTED A DONATION. WE SURVIVED ON OUR OWN. THIS PLACE IS ALSO A PLACE OF LEADERSHIP. IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN WHEN WE ATTRACT IMPACT INVESTMENTS TO SCALE TO THOUSANDS OF TRAINEES , WHICH WILL PRODUCE WORKERS AT SCALE.

ZERO RECRUITMENT COSTS, QUICK DEPLOYMENT, CUSTOMIZED TRAINING AND CONTEMPORARY WORKFORCE FOR COMPANIES IS THE VISION. IT SAVES MONEY, CREATES A HUGE BUSINESS VALUE, REDUCES RISK, INCREASES WORKER PRODUCTIVITY AND HELPS PEOPLE GET BACK THEIR LIVES. LIVES MATTER.
