Today, Swaziland is faced with the greatest crises of our modern world. Latest surveys show that nearly 45% of Swazi people are infected with HIV-AIDS, leading the world with the highest infection rate per capita. Local news recently reported that only 1 in 10, fifteen year old Swazi children will live to see their 30th birthday. The United Nations has predicted that Swaziland will become extinct as a nation by the year 2050. We however, are convinced that God has other plans!
Currently, there are over 70,000 orphans in the country, many of which are living in homes lead by an older brother or sister. Recent research shows that 17% of all homes in the country are child-led, with the average age of the child running the home being only 13.
