Sparrow Fund Sponsorship
The Sparrow Fund is small, supporting just 69 children. We know and love them all. We keep in touch with our sponsors, too, with regular newsletters that help you learn about life in your child's community. We are committed to these children, and want to give them the very best education we can, along with necessities that keep them healthy and alert, so they can reach their full potential.
We keep our sponsorship fees low, just $30 a month, so that anyone can afford to sponsor. This easily covers expenses for local schools, but we aspire to send many of our students to simple boarding schools, where they get an excellent education. Non-sponsoring donors and Omiyo beads sales money help us do that.
Next in line for a sponsor: Louis
Who would like to help this industrious young man get through high school? Louis is an orphan who has been raised by his grandparents. He is an eager student; at one time he was walking two hours each way to school. At 16, he's been accepted at one of the best secondary schools in his district, but he hasn't been able to start, because of COVID. During the lockdown, he's been growing onions, okra and cabbages to support his elderly grandparents and earn some pocket money. His sponsor is also elderly and unable to continue to support Louis. The person who gets to sponsor him (for $35 a month) will be investing in a very worthy young man.
