Sparrow Society is not a traditional factory, but rather works through the creation of a network of over 100 home-based seamstresses (SewBoss), empowering women with basic business skills and a support network to allow her flexibility and ownership, while maintaining access to ongoing work opportunities and peer support to keep her business sustainable.
In our new Covid reality, we have put all our SewBoss trainings and resources into digital format, pre-loaded onto smartphones distributed to our SewBoss network. This reduces their need to travel via public transport to get to our training facilities while also INCREASING their access to valuable resources that will help them succeed. We have added some extra resources to help them develop in their personal lives as well as their business life. With sections on Gender Based Violence, Health & Exercise and other personal development resources, the SewBoss App is a holistic tool to help them thrive.
