Help Us Empower Women
Freedom Begins with Economic Empowerment.
We envision an Eswatini where empowered women sit at the economic table, and their health, livelihoods, and future are in their own hands.
Our Goal is to Help Young Women End the Cycle of Poverty
We’re Non-Profit Social Enterprise
Our Community for Swazi SHEROES is the young women living in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland). Women in Eswatini face an incredible burden due to the HIV pandemic and lack of economic opportunity. Our mission is to holistically empower the women in Eswatini through economic development to mitigate and prevent HIV/AIDS.
HIV prevalence is the highest globally in Eswatini, and Swazi women are disproportionately affected. UN AIDS reports show that out of 190,000 adults living with HIV in Eswatini, 120,000 (63.16%) were women. In addition, new HIV infections among young women aged 15–24 years were more than quadruple those among young men.
