Who we are

Starfish Foundation

The Starfish Foundation has grown out of many involvements which have developed since Mary Mills and Moses Duche first went to work in Mukono, Uganda, in 2009.
There were so many obvious needs and ways developed in which we could help people to the extent that we felt we needed to evolve into a “proper” registered, Christian Non-Government Organisation in our own right.as this would enable us to branch out for funding and networking with other agencies. The official registration was granted in January 2019 (Reg charity number:MIA/NB/2019/01/1959).
We base our work on the Starfish poem, aiming to help people “one by one.”

We work together with Global Care (who are based in the UK) and endorse their motto: “Can’t do everything, Can’t do nothing. CAN do something…”
