We have recently formed a new partnership with Potter’s Wheel Church and Challenge Ministries in Swaziland.

Our first mission trip took place in October 2015.  Find out more about what happened and watch the video.

A second team visited in September 2016 and a Youth Team in October 2017.

We hope to see the relationship develop further as we provide financial and practical skills-based assistance.

Swaziland is a beautiful, friendly country but it has huge challenges:

  • Highest AIDS rate in the world, now thought to be over 40%
  • 69% of the population live on less than one American dollar per day.
  • Life expectancy: 32 years
  • Half the population are under 15 years
  • 1 out of 10 homes in Swaziland are led by children under the age of 11
  • Estimated 120,000 orphans
  • 40% of Swazi children are suffering from malnutrition.
