Projects

ProjectsEach year we adopt a list of projects for which we raise money but the nature of the changing priorities in Swaziland means that often we have to alter our list of urgent needs to respond to local circumstances. For example, the edict that it was compulsory for all children eligible for grades 1-6 to attend school and that this would be supported by some government and EU money meant that all of a sudden, many additional children arrived at some schools leading to problems with insufficient accommodation or teachers’ houses.

We have been undertaking projects since 1999 and listed below is what we have achieved in recent years. The tab describes the projects and the tab at the bottom takes you to photos of some of those projects. If you would like to see the complete list of projects undertaken since 1999 please email the charity.
