The Kingdom of Swaziland has the world’s highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rate which has taken its toll on the population leaving many children orphaned or vulnerable. It also has an unemployment rate of about 30% which rises to over 50% among the youth. These factors combine leading to approximately 63% of the population living below the poverty line.
Social enterprise and small businesses are vital to help the economy and to bring income into families. All Out Africa has a network of social enterprises / small businesses which it supports though placement of interns/interns and business mentors. Many of these organisations employ women, who traditionally are more marginalized in the employment market, and are also members of local Fair Trade Organisations to help ensure good standards of working and pay for their employees.
