We believe in investing in businesses in Eswatini that generate profits to support our childcare work.
Challenge Ministries Swaziland have developed various enterprises over the last 20 years with the aim of becoming self-sustaining as a charity. The profits from these businesses add to the income generated through fund-raising and are used in our wider work caring for orphans and vulnerable children. The enterprises also create employment opportunities for many of the young people graduating from Bulembu.
Covid has hit the economy hard and so we have had to sell our water business and downscale honey production. The lodge and restaurant have also been hit hard with the loss of tourism and therefore visitors. The dairy and Bakery in Bulembu continue to produce food and milk for the children. Our great hope is a new exciting venture into the essential oils market.
