Why Hope?

Sparrows Landing Global Inc. believes in the power of hope. “We believe  that if you restore hope in someone, you can restore a life”. When someone has hope, that person has something to live for, a reason to try and the fight to keep going. Hope will push you. Hope will get you up every day. Hope will make you a fighter and most importantly, hope will give a person the courage to do better, for themselves and for those  around them. We understand that hope is a powerful thought process that has the ability to turn dreams to reality and pain into power.
