Sparrow Schools Bursary Fund

Personal message

Sparrow Schools are based in Melville and Sophiatown. Our vision is to educate and prepare children and youth who live with learning difficulties to become income-generators through comprehensive education, vocational skills training, and intensive learner support initiatives.  With the announcement by the Minister of Basic Education that schools will be re-opening on 1 June, our greatest concern is ensuring that our learners can return to school.  We are also very aware that the majority of our students come from disadvantaged backgrounds, where most of their basic needs are not met including meals.  Education can combat poverty! Our plea to you is to assist us by donating toward this bursary fund to keep our children in school.

During this Covid-19 pandemic, children have been missing out on their education because they have been unable to attend school and more parents are losing jobs. Due to this, school fees will not be paid and these vulnerable children will once again be affected by:

1. Further losses in learning.
2. They will have to drop out.
3. Children missing their most important meal of the day.

This campaign will assist us to overcome and reduce as much as possible, the negative impact, this pandemic, has had on children and families.

The children attending our schools come from townships within Johannesburg and orphanages in our surrounding areas.  This funding will be made available to any of the children whose parents or guardians can no longer afford to send their children to Sparrow Schools, in particular, those affected by the Covid-19 lockdown.  Funding will also go towards the feeding scheme we offer at the Foundation School.
