Our Difference Makers

Starfish Difference Maker

Ralph Wilson

 Our first award was presented on June 27, 2023. Ralph Wilson is a Vietnam veteran who has displayed a lifetime of giving back. Ralph fights through adversity and inspires others to bring inclusion and hope to those in need. Ralph is a regular blood donor, elementary school volunteer, school board member, project volunteer for GJ VA, and volunteer instructor for New Dimensions. Congratulations to Ralph!

Our incredible donors make this dream a reality. We want to recognize these Difference Makers. A Mt. Kenya donor has given 500 to 999 dollars to Starfish International. A Mt. Kilimanjaro Donor has given over 1,000 dollars to Starfish International. These Difference Makers have opened so many doors of opportunity to the community of Mathare.

Let's build a school!
