After Beyond Survival was created in August of 2006, the first global initiative was to partner with Children’s HopeChest (CHC) and Adventures In Missions (AIM) in order to help sustain Bhalekane Community Care Point.
This care point was established by an incredible man named Walter. Several years ago, he went out and counted over 500 orphans in his community. He attempted to provide for them out of his own pocket through starting eight different care points. Early on, these care points were serving food about three times a week. Now, through committed sponsors, orphans and vulnerable children are receiving two meals a day, five days a week.
In addition, there has been a preschool started, a community center built, a kitchen serving station built, teachers’ housing built, a well drilled, and toilets provided. Beyond Survival sends a team over every year to provide teacher training, medical check-ups, VBS, construction projects, leadership appreciation and a pastors’ conference.
It is Beyond Survival’s desire to continue to invest in Swaziland and help create sustainable forms of income so that more and more people can provide for themselves and their families. Most Swazis simply need the opportunity to make their lives better.
