Ravaged by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Swaziland has the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world, leaving thousands of children — 12% of the population — without parents. In addition, 40% of all Swazis live on less than $1.25 per day, which is below the international poverty line.
But we believe God has a redemptive plan for Swaziland.
The key to a nation’s future is its children — in the care for their physical well being, the fulfillment of basic needs like food, clean water, and shelter, and in their education.
We see a generation of children raised up to take leadership of their country and go throughout the world to preach the Gospel, following Jesus with passion and character. We see communities with healthy families characterized by healthy relationships, leading towards an abundant and holistically healthy future for their nation.
We want to see children become well-adjusted adults living abundant lives through Christ and contributing in productive ways to their society through church, work, family, and community. We address this vision through our partnership with Children's Hopechest and the neighborhood Carepoints where they have access to food, discipleship, clean water, education, and healthcare.
Within every community, we want to see vital, reproductive churches that reach across generations to help people grow spiritually. We do this through Adventures' focus on church planting and church partnerships.
Through efforts in leadership development and sustainable agricultural, we are also able to use micro enterprise to build people up in their current lives, as well as come alongside them, as they learn and grow for the future.
