One million Swazi people live in this small land-locked country nestled between Mozambique and South Africa. Points of concern: poverty, sickness, and lack of education.
- One in four people have HIV/AIDS.
- 64% of deaths are caused by HIV/AIDS.
- Over the hill at 40? In Swaziland, that’s their life expectancy.
- 47% of the population is under the age of 15.
- Two thirds of the population is unable to meet basic food needs.
Hopelessness leads to a vicious cycle of poverty, sickness, and death.
