John Richmond Featured on Starfish Project Blog


Co-founder John Cotton Richmond was recently featured on the Starfish Project blog, talking about his role in the fight against human trafficking.

“Hope springs from the fact that human trafficking can be stopped,” he said. “We are not powerless to confront this surge and we are not relegated to merely mitigating the consequences of trafficking.”

Starfish Project exists to restore hope to exploited women in Asia. They provide life change opportunities through Holistic Care Programs and social enterprise ventures, where women create jewelry and become managers, accountants, graphic designers, and photographers.

Their Holistic Care Programs provide vocational training, healthcare, shelter, counseling, and education grants for our women and their children. Starfish Project has employed over 130 women and has served thousands through our Community Outreach Services.
