Sparrows is a children’s home established in 2000. At any one time, it cares for an average of 25 children placed in its care by the court system. Placements are for a renewable period of 2 years. Few of the children are orphans (without parents), with most being from difficult socio-economic backgrounds.
Disclosure: I was secretary of the governing board from 2014 – 2017 and still regularly donate time to the organisation.
