Over the past five years, we have been supporting orphans and vulnerable children, income generation projects, food security and advocacy. With the generous support of so many we have been able to change the lives of hundreds of people by:
Educating 700 children, through providing primary school fees, school uniforms and equipment for them to be able to learn without facing discrimination and have an equal chance.
Food security for 500 people, through setting up small scale farming projects within communities, as well as providing emergency food packages to orphans and vulnerable communities.
We have support two income generation projects, through the start up phase, providing training and the basic materials benefiting over 200 people.
Small scale enterprise development for support groups across Swaziland including: sewing businesses, candle and vasaline making and peanut butter buisnesses.
We have been providing advocacy and rights training to 1000 people. The training has ranged from sexual health, legal rights, general health and women and child rights. This has led to a substantial shift in attitudes and understanding of the community members, which has in turn changed their behaviour and improved their lives substantially.
We have also been the voice for Swaziland across the globe in the past three years. We have over 30,000 twitter followers and Positive Women groups in 10 countries across the world.We have World Wide Trended Swaziland on twitter for the first time ever and continue to mobilise support from media, such as cosmopolitan magazine and high profile supporter such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Reverend Tutu.
