Nutrition & Wellness
To help fight hunger and improve the well-being of our children, we provide balanced and nutritious meals five days a week to all students participating in our program. Protective measures are in place to monitor the health of the students during their entire duration with us which include annual medical and dental check-ups.
Showers of Blessings
Sparrow Music, in partnership with local churches, carries out Showers of Blessings—a ministry that provides healthy hygiene training, showers, and meals for children living in the surrounding community. During this event, the kids enjoy recreational activities, praise and worship, learn Bible stories, and share personal testimonies. These activities provide simple and practical assistance, but they also receive the affirming love of Christ. More than 500 children have been beneficiaries of this ministry since it beganin September 2013.
Medical and Dental Missions
We are extremely blessed in being able to offer annual medical and dental care to our students. Sparrow students receive yearly physical exams, in which height, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate are recorded. Most recently, a dermatologist visited our learning center and treated students and people in the surrounding community for lice, eczema, and other common skin ailments. Over 300 people were treated over the couse of the free two-day clinic!
Our students are also trained and guided in adopting healthy hygiene habits. The ministry of Sparrow provides, each and every student with a personal toothbrush and toothpaste; brushing after meals is mandatory. A local dentist missionary visits our center each year to perform oral prophylaxis and tooth extractions when necessary. Basic antibiotics are provided in efforts to prevent infection.
