The Sparrow Studio's primary goal is to create a marketplace for handmade home decor from a cooperative of women in Africa. The cooperative is composed of 35 women in Kigali, Rwanda. They are hard working, talented, creative, beautiful moms, survivors of the massive genocide in 1994. They are also primarily HIV + and hoping to leave the sex trade and a situation defined by shame and crippling poverty.
At The Sparrow Studio, we believe people are valuable because they are image bearers of God. These particular 35 women have captured our hearts with their stories and their courage. These women are worth our time, our financial investment, and the best of our creative energies. We love them because God first loved us.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for choosing Sparrow Studio designs to feather your nest. Your belief that our work is valuable pushes us to keep growing and creating. Your purchase is allowing 35 women in Africa a taste of the goodness of God. Thank you for sharing this journey with us.
