Expanding in Swaziland

The gospel is spreading through Africa’s smallest country in new and innovative ways.

Eswatini, which was known as Swaziland until its king changed the name last year, is a country in southern Africa about the size of Massachusetts andwhere many of its people live in poverty and fear of HIV.  

Frustration with the lack of improvements promised by Eswatini’s government has mounted in recent years. World Challenge’s partners, however, have put their hope for change in God’s work in their neighbors’ hearts and outlook on life.

In the northern highlands, the team was already running a children’s home and farm, but they were looking for a way to increase their blessings on the community.
