Rotary Working in Eswatini/Swaziland

Club support for Partners in Education Eswatini/Swaziland which helps street and vulnerable children.


PARTNERS IN EDUCATION IN ESWATINI WAS SWAZILAND

The Club Continues to support the charity Partners in Education ESWATINI. Previously we helped part fund the refurbishment of a building in Mbabane, ESWATINI to be used to provide a meal a day for street and other vulnerable children.  Pre-school are also given some basic education.

At that time 45 children were attending the new centre.  Since then the demand has increased such that some 95 children are now attending.  The majority of the children going to the centre are orphans who, without the centre would have no means of gaining food on a daily basis. As you can see from the latest newsletters over 200 children are currently receiving a meal.

The Club continues to support the centre with a generous donation supporting a bee keeping project which is now producing honey for sale.. The spring update shows the real problems being experienced through Covid which has led to growing malnutrition and the Club has made a further substantial donation to ease these issues. The January 2024 newsletter shows better times since Covid but still difficulties with inflation etc., but success in selling honey and produce to support the centres.
