Sparrow Ministries of Help
It is the mission of Sparrow Ministries to provide care and comfort to adults and children who have been infected or affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. We are both a hospice for the terminally ill and a children’s home for those vulnerable children who have become homeless due to the death of one or both of their parents.
Sparrow Ministries consists of a Youth Transitional Programme for youth over the age of 18. This project has been focused on education, life skills and personal development. Currently all youth are enrolled into schools, colleges and universities but unfortunately we lack study facility materials such as; laptops, internet access, desks and chairs to name a few, in order to run as a functional resource centre for Matric and college/university students. This specific project aims to uplift, develop and support youth in their future endeavours. Many of our youth have found interest in the academic and business fields and are focused on attaining qualifications by making use of their knowledge in a business-focused environment. Sparrow Ministries has begun to create opportunities which will benefit both the youth and Sparrow Rainbow Village in a self-sustainable manner.
