Led by Dr. Nanthaporn Seributra, Starfish Education is funded through a dedicated endowment managed by Firetree Trust and funded by Richard Paul “Dick” Haugland - a philanthropist, scientist and entrepreneur.


We are firmly rooted in Asia where everyone in our team is based and all our work is carried out at the moment, while through Firetree Philanthropy we are working to ensure that our learnings can be shared with education initiatives in other Asian countries when appropriate. 


In everything we do, we carry on Dick’s legacy and expand on the main charitable priorities he developed over the years together with Francesco Caruso, his long-time friend and colleague and Dr. Seributra, with whom he designed most of the Starfish curricula and programs.
