A ministry opportunity for future, current, or former college student athletes who want to share the love of Christ in Southern Africa.
Swaziland is like no other place on earth. Visitors are stunned by the lush, mountainous beauty of a country that has been stricken by disease, leaving families broken.
While tragic truth hides behind the stark beauty of the African hills, you can help share hope in this land.
No country on earth has been more devastated by HIV/AIDS. With the highest rate of infection in the world, the disease has affected almost every family in Swaziland. 10% of Swazi children have been orphaned because of infected parents. Words like "rape" and "abuse" can be found in school children's workbooks. Mothers are widowed, left with no means to support their hungry families. These statistics continue to increase at an alarming rate. Women and children are often left malnourished, uneducated and without hope. During your time in Africa, you will share hope to those left behind by the pandemic.
Adventures has been based in Swaziland for more than 10 years. The base in Swaziland is centered around Orphan Care, primarily through places called Care Points.
