Sparrow organizes several seminars in Lazareto. The subjects will be chosen together with the inhabitants of this neighborhood. Some of the subjects are family planning, parent-child bonding and breast feeding. The seminars will be given by professionals on these subjects.
In September 2010 the subject of the seminar was family relationships. Chona, employee of Sparrow and psychologist, led this seminar. She spoke about the conditions of a healthy family situation, in which a child feels safe enough to develop and learn. The child’s emotional needs were strongly emphasized.
To the participants it was a discovery to find out that the most important need of a child can be met without material goods. The seminar was very interactive and the participants were asked to give a lot of input.
