Working towards a more equitable society through gender advocacy, strategic economic empowerment and support for Survivors of Gender-Based Violence.

Our Programs

Sparrow Society’s Power Pads project is empowering survivors of Human Trafficking and Gender-Based Violence to make over 100,000 washable cloth sanitary pads for free distribution to young women across the whole of Africa. This program addresses women’s empowerment by addressing the need for financial stability for survivors to rebuild their lives free from their abuser, and the very real need of girls who lack access to these essential items (menstrual products) that will allow them to stay in school when on their periods. It weaves together women of all ages who are all in hard circumstances on their own, but who have come together to support one another.

Young Entrepreneur Society

Developing strong, confident young women through Skills & Scholarship, the Young Entrepreneur Society gives high school aged girls the opportunity to finish their education. Developed by Sparrow Society, the YES Girl Project is an after-school program that offers a job-skills based curriculum coupled with a simple jewelry micro-business to teach valuable business skills that the girls can take with them into any industry. Taking child sponsorship to a whole new (SUSTAINABLE AND EMPOWERING) level, the profits through the sale of each girl’s product will go towards her scholarship fund to enable her to continue her education.
