Challenge Ministries Swaziland UK work in Swaziland, a landlocked Kingdom in Southern Africa. A country with one of the highest HIV/AIDs rates in the world, where an estimated 90% of 15 year olds won’t reach the age of 35 and where over 100,000 orphaned and vulnerable children live on the streets (out of a total population of just over 1 million).

CMS UK provide full time care to 400 orphaned and vulnerable children throughout Swaziland. They provide them with a home, a family, an education and a future. They also distribute emergency aid and medical assistance into communities most in need. They partner with locals to create ICBC’s (In Community, By Community projects) and through these partnerships are able to house children, teach local people a trade and install necessary long term solutions to drought and malnourishment.

They also pioneer businesses – sustainability is key to all that they are trying to achieve. These businesses now fund 35% of the total cost of the orphan care programme as well as creating work in the areas. They’d love to see the businesses fund 100% of the costs.
