SOTENI partners with semi-autonomous, community-based organizations to implement programs in alignment with our three strategic pillars:
Health & Wellbeing
Strengthening health and wellbeing in communities affected by HIV/AIDS through SOTENI AIDS Barefoot Doctors (ABDs). ABDs are community health workers who provide home-based care, support group therapy, education, and access to safe drinking water.
Developing small business ventures and income-generating activities to ensure economic independence for Swazi SHEROES and sustainability for HIV Support Groups.
Broadening our impact with need-based programming in SOTENI Villages of Hope, from health clinics to support for secondary education.
“I have spent time with all three of the SOTENI Villages of Hope and I am proud to recognize SOTENI as one of the best in developing true community-based capabilities.”
