Swaziland is the smallest nation in the southern hemisphere, with a population of just over 1.2 million people. Economic poverty is prevalent and the rate of HIV/AIDS is among the highest in the world. Many of the children are orphaned or vulnerable. An orphan refers to a child that has lost one or both parents. The children often refer to their extended family as their parents. Meanwhile a vulnerable child is a child that comes from a poor background. The parents could be dead or alive but are poor and unable to provide adequately for the needs of the child.
Bulembu Ministries and Challenge Ministries work directly with Swaziland Social Welfare to welcome children into our care program. Our vision is to raise up the next generation of Swazi leaders. With your help we are providing a bright future full of hope for orphaned and vulnerable children who will be available to serve their nation in their God-given gifting.

Our Child Sponsorship Programme
Bulembu’s Child Sponsorship Programme is a way to support the Bulembu vision as the town works to rescue children, raise leaders and rebuild a community and a nation. Unlike other child sponsorship programs, Bulembu’s Child Sponsorship Programme goes beyond simply supplying essentials like food, shelter and clothing. Child sponsorship ensures long-term, sustainable solutions by providing holistic care directly to children in need.
100% of all sponsorship funds go directly towards the child, providing coverage for all aspects of the child’s life: monthly medical, food, caregiver, clothing and housing, and education. Bulembu’s Child Sponsorship Programme gives Swazi kids the opportunity to thrive, to just be kids and to emerge as leaders in their homes, work, community and nation. We at Bulembu believe every child deserves the chance to have an education and fulfil their dreams.
Becoming a Sponsor
We are proud to share the stories of the children and the work in Bulembu and Hawane and hope you become part of the journey with us. Our goal is to update sponsors on progress on a quarterly basis and to update a sponsor’s child profile annually, on our Child Sponsorship website.
Updates that a sponsor receives include photos, information, videos.
