Feedachild.co.za tells us that it is estimated that almost 10% of the South African population are children of no particular culture or ethical group, living below the poverty line and in circumstances beyond their control. Being hungry not only affects children physically, it affects them emotionally too.
It’s pretty hard to focus in the classroom when your stomach is growling from hunger, this is why Sparrow is dedicated to ensuring that our children do not enter the classroom hungry.
We offer our learners in need, breakfast before school each morning and a snack and drink at break-time.
For as little as R60 per month, you can contribute to our learner feeding scheme and help us to feed our hungry children.
