The small, mountainous country of Eswatini has a dark secret: the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world.

This pandemic has broken almost every family in Eswatini. Due to a promiscuous culture, the ancient tribal tradition of polygamy, and many myths about casual sex, 40% of Swazi children are orphaned.

Words like “rape” and “abuse” can be found in elementary students’ workbooks. Mothers are often left widowed and with no means to support their hungry children, due to lack of education.

Will you share the promise of hope for the future with the orphans of Eswatini?

Culture
Freedom of religion was only established in 2006. The government generally respects freedom of religion in practice. Although indigenous religions are not widely practiced, traditional Swazi culture remains strong, and important ceremonies, such as the Incwala and Umhlanga have religious overtones.

It is considered highly offensive to fart in public.

Explore
Take an excursion to Execution Rock outside Manzini for some hiking and gorgeous views.

If the weather is warm, go swim at Mantenga Falls outside of Mbabne. There are small cliffs you can jump from, as well as swim near the falls.

Care to see lions, elephants, white rhinos, or giraffes? For an overnight safari excursion, check out Hlane Royal National Park.
