Mahangeni CarePoint

Mahangeni is located in the Nsoko region in the country of Eswatini. Mahangeni means “between two fields” because it is uniquely situated between two sugar cane fields where there is a high population of migrant farmers.

The Mahangeni CarePoint was started by older women in the area at the height of the famine that struck the region, which caused multitudes of men, women, and children to lose their jobs and go hungry. A local pastor found the need to come alongside the CarePoint staff by helping provide food on a regular basis.

Located on the vast landscape is a classroom where the children gather for discipleship classes and a makeshift kitchen where the food is prepared.

Empower a Child at Mahangeni

Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.

Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

Fund a Project at Mahangeni

HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.

Your meaningful gift to fund a project at Mahangeni CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
