Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
Refer to our Annual Report on our website for full details.Since Starfish's inception, we have led or supported 131 sustainability initiatives involving 590 partner organisations, 159 funders, 297 contractors, 1,105 volunteers and 11,861 participants.As at today, the combined supporter base for all of our sustainability initiatives is more than 5,600 people.The diversity and reach of our sustainability work has similarly grown ~ with operations in Australia, China, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Peru, and Vietnam plus a diverse portfolio of work encompassing renewable energy, regenerative farming, reconciliation, social housing, disability, natural funerals, youth development, leadership, governance and more.Starfish is well placed for the commencement of its new strategic plan and to continue to implement this range of rural sustainability initiatives as well as further expand the reach and impact of its work by utilising its comprehensive system of supporting systems, services, and sustainability professionals.It is poignant that Starfish Foundation was finally awarded tax deductible donation status after more than five years of negotiations, and was listed on the Australian Government Register of Environmental Organisations on 27 April 2016.This was the last major regulatory approval that Starfish required to be fully operational, and the official launch of Starfish is now being organised ~ eight years after we started work!
