Sparrow Society is a non-profit company based in Cape Town, South Africa. They aim to go beyond mere charity by providing the skills training and opportunities for their artisans to earn a livable wage with dignity, and to go from merely surviving to thriving. They strive to create high-quality products with ethically sourced materials featuring Afri-Mod designs. Sparrow Society hopes to be a part of the solution to close the economic gap through creating dignifying jobs, adding to skills development and small business support. Through their Creative Business Course, they have been able to help many women start their own small business, sewing from their homes. This gives them added flexibility and empowers them to take charge of their futures. Sparrow Society hires them as Independent Contractors on larger orders, which helps with keeping the small businesses sustainable. They partner with skills development training centers to upskill the seamstresses, and also with a workshop in Gugulethu that trains and employs people with disabilities.
