eSwatini Swazi Kitchen

Africa // Swaziland

The eSwatini Swazi Kitchen is a project of Manzini Youth Care, an organization in Swaziland that is addressing both the roots and the impact of severe poverty in Swaziland.

eSwatini Kitchen generates employment for women who make jams, chutneys, marmalades, and gift baskets. It also is an income generating project whose proceeds help to run the Manzini Youth Care program, which provides housing, food and education at several centers to former street children, many of whom are HIV/AIDS orphans.

Consumers who spread eSwatini Kitchen's jams, jellies and chutnies on their toast in the morning make an immediate connection with a network of several hundred Swazi men, women, and youth, including the women who work full-time in the kitchen, the Swazi farmers who grow the fruit, and the hundreds of children receiving care at the youth centers.
