Bringing hope to a hopeless nation, Heart for Africa (Canada) – a faith-based humanitarian organization – works to end hunger, care for orphans, alleviate poverty and provide education in the tiny Kingdom of Swaziland, Africa. AIDS is ravaging this nation, leaving children orphaned and vulnerable. It is estimated that there are more than 200,000 orphans living in Swaziland with more than half of the total population being orphans and vulnerable children.
Heart for Africa (Canada) is addressing these enormous challenges in many innovative and effective ways. Project Canaan, a 2,500-acre land development, is bringing global expertise, resources and heart together to find a holistic solution to a complex set of issues. Providing training and employment, Project Canaan grows large amounts of food to stimulate the local economy and allow for export while supporting orphans and vulnerable children on the property and across the nation. Project Canaan is not only feeding the hungry, it is also caring for orphans.
One of the most significant aspects of Project Canaan’s services to the children under our care is a commitment to their schooling. While the children living with us are now all under the age of six years, we are working on laying the foundation for their educational success. Therefore, construction of the necessary physical plant for the primary school (Grades 1-5) and annual programming are important components of our plan. With over 40 children entering school next year, we must begin building now to be ready to welcome them and provide the right start to their academic success.
