About World Vision Eswatini

World Vision Eswatini (WVE) started operating in 1992, focusing mainly on emergency relief after the devastating drought that hit Eswatini. In 1996 the focus shifted from relief to disaster mitigation, rehabilitation, and transformational development.

Initially, WVE used the community development project (CDP) approach and later changed to the Area Development Programme (ADP) approach to ensure greater impact and sustainability of community based development interventions. Through the ADPs in recent years, WVS interventions have addressed problems on food insecurity (mainly through agriculture), water shortages, education, HIV and AIDS, health, infrastructure development, and economic development, in the process changing lives of the poor.
