To provide support in terms of food, education and loving care for the most vulnerable children in Eswatini (Swazliand) through:
- A substantial meal each day
- Health care and general support
- Pre-school education
- Sponsorship for formal education
We are a small North West of England based registered charity with eight Trustees who raise money to provide the necessary finance to meet our Mission Statement. We do this through fund-raising events, regular and single donations and sponsorship. The Trustees pay for all their own expenses ensuring that every penny raised goes directly to supporting the children.
Eswatini is a small land locked country, surrounded by South Africa on three sides and Mozambique. It has a temperate climate with mountains, forests and plains within its borders.
Horticulture is the prime source of income for the country where maize is grown in abundance and forestry is predominate. The staple diet of the people is maize. Over recent years the lack of food and water have been constant resulting from severe drought situations. Around 70% of the country’s population live below the poverty level and of the £1.1m population 25% are orphans. Nearly 30% of the adult population are living with HIV.
Our grateful thanks go to:
SOS Villages, Soroptimist International of Great Britain & Ireland, Christadelphian Meal a Day, Rotary International, and the many individuals in Swaziland and the UK who continue to give their generous support.
