Our Vision and Mission
“We are a non-profit organisation serving Jesus Christ through community enterprise and community care”
Our vision is to raise leaders while restoring a town for sustainable Kingdom transformation
We do this by restoring hope, equipping lives, building family through Christ-centered community care and community enterprise
Eswatini (Swaziland), a small, beautiful kingdom between South Africa and Mozambique, is in dire need. It has the one of the highest AIDS rates in the world and the disease has taken an entire generation of Swazis. In the 90’s the population was decreasing so rapidly that the UN estimated the Swazi people would be wiped out by the year 2050. Although hard work has improved the statistics, the country has suffered persistent drought, adding to the problems. There are around 120,000 orphans and vulnerable children in desperate need of care.
An orphan is a child who has lost one or both parents. Vulnerable children may have family but they are so poor that they are unable to provide for the basic needs of the child.
In 2006, a team of social developers and entrepreneurs purchased the abandoned mining town of Bulembu with a vision to restore it to a fully sustainable town, which provides care to over 350 orphaned and vulnerable children. Today, our variety of successful Community Enterprises such as the Bulembu Country Lodge, Bulembu Honey and Bulembu Water provide for the sustainability fund for our Community Care. Our children live in family homes with a caregiver, where they receive all they need, and we provide all children with a full education at Bulembu Christian Academy. The town has a thriving church and a clinic where all children receive health care. And so our vision is realised – raising up the next generation to be the future leaders of Eswatini.

The kingdom of Swaziland is in crisis. It has one of the highest AIDS rates in the world, and in the 1990s the population was decreasing so rapidly that the UN estimated that the Swazi people would be wiped out by 2050. There are around 120,000 orphans and vulnerable children living in need, and having also having had severe droughts, the country has suffered greatly.
In 2006 a team of social developers and entrepreneurs purchased the abandoned mining town of Bulembu with a vision to restore it to a fully sustainable town which provides care to over 350 orphaned and vulnerable children. This video gives a window into the impact of Bulembu Ministries on the lives of some of the many children we have the privilege of caring for.
