A Ministry Serious About Transformation
Sparklers Ministries International is founded by Sylvia Chen, a Singaporean missionary who is passionate about empowering children to realise their fullest potentials.
"When you educate children and believe in them, you empower these kids to pursue and fulfill their dreams.
Regardless of culture, every child should be loved.
Every child should be provided with at least 3 balanced meals a day. Every child should live in a caring home and receive good education.
Children should not be forced into child labour or other forms of exploitations or abuse (physical/emotional/substance abuse/neglect). " - Sylvia Chen
