Our Young Entrepreneur Society is an after-school program for high-school girls designed to give girls a jump-start in their careers and dreams for the future.

They learn basic entrepreneurship lessons, attain job readiness skills, and have the opportunity to create their own business plan.  Our Zambia chapter even implements micro-businesses to fund scholarships for the girls to give their families the economic option to keep them in school.

be a part of empowering women everywhere.

This platform enables our Business & Entrepreneurship curriculum to have an even wider impact and reach, making it freely available for use by other organizations and bundled for use in even the most remote locations.

Our goal is to reach women and girls in the most marginalized of communities, starting in Southern Africa, that otherwise would not have access to such opportunity. This level of entrepreneurship training and opportunities (especially those using tech in their business training) are often only available to women in more “developed” countries. In the global feminist movement, the most vulnerable women are often left out of the conversation and their needs are too often sidelined.  Our program is centered around making sure these women have a seat at the table and are given the same opportunities for advancement and empowerment.
Donate towards the development of our Business Support & Entrepreneurship Training app that empowers the women across all our programs – and beyond!

Got an old smartphone or tablet? Donate it!

Access to technology and communication is crucial for small businesses. So how will people who don’t have a smart phone or tablet access the free app (and thus benefit from the information available)? When you donate your smart phone, we distribute it to a start up entrepreneur (eg- a SewBoss or YES Chapter location) in our network to enable access to a world of information and opportunity. The device will allow her to access to our training app, professional invoicing and bookkeeping, and she is able to better communicate with clients to grow her business. You can drop it off at our shop in Muizenberg or contact us and we will send a courier to collect.
Why does Sparrow Society focus on Women?

Gender Based Violence is a reality that many women in South Africa face. It has been proven that when women are able to financially sustain themselves, they are less vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. By providing economic opportunities for women, we are restoring the power back into her hands to protect herself, provide for her family, and reach for a better future.

"We are not in the business of creating products. We are in the business of creating options - real options." - Kate Brim-Senekal, Founder & Managing Director
