Friends and Partners 

We do not believe that Starfish should work alone. Down through the history of Malawi, there have been many people and charities who have sought to help those who have little. Christians believe this fulfils their calling of "loving one's neighbour". Starfish seeks out partners to assist them in delivering their mission. Those chosen all have gifts and experiences that Starfish do not have. Working together is essential in using our gifts efficiently. Those listed are partners who are tried and tested.
