Three branches make up Starfish Project which offers a dignified job and holistic care programs for trafficked women in Asia, employing 35 women, but offering education, medical and emotional care to dozens of additional women in brothels. A typical question one might ask is why the women don’t just leave when they are offered a way out. Unfortunately, many of these women are abused and were tricked into working in the brothels and the project must work at gaining the trust of the women, who work with the project for two years. These women receive on-the-job training in jewelry production- the Pottery Shop offers many items from Starfish project, most especially unique and beautiful necklaces and earrings- but they also receive the opportunity to take computer classes, additional training in vocational courses such as accounting, photography and graphic designs that prepares them for future careers
