Swazi SHEROES One Year Later

Swazi SHEROES, a program of SOTENI International launched in FY 2020–2021. SHEROES strives to build the economic capacity of young women in Eswatini (Swaziland) as a way to help them make healthy choices and reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS.


In September 2021, SHEROES held an online kick-off event with the screening of LIYANA, raising $25,000 toward the start-up in Eswatini. This was accompanied by the establishment of an advisory board in the United States and partnership with the Imbeleko foundation in Eswatini. The program launched, opening a workshop in Manzini training its first cohort of young women.


In addition to training the young women in the skills of sewing and craft design, SHEROES staff have been working with advisory board members and local professionals to design and delivery wrap around programming for the participants that includes psycho-social support and life skills training.


Despite COVID restrictions and political unrest, SHEROES has managed to emerge as a safe haven for the young women of Eswatini and looks forward to growing rapidly this coming year.


We thank you for your support!

Swazi SHEROES Founder and Board Chair
