The StarFish Video Project was founded by a videographer with a long history with TFI. On his journey through India in 2010, he encountered a mother and her two children living on the sidewalk in Old Delhi. Touched by the family’s story, he decided to use what power he had to help. With the assistance of a friend from home and a social worker in India, he was able to purchase a merchant cart so that the mother could start a business, register the kids in school, and rent a room for the family with water and electricity for six months. Today this is just one of the numerous success stories from the StarFish Project. The project encourages middle-class Americans to reach out and offer a helping hand to families in need through small donations. Because of the difference between the power of money in the American economy against the currency of many developing economies, a small amount of money from the United States can lift families in places like India out of extreme poverty.
