South Africa continues to have the largest HIV epidemic in the world, with over 5.6 million people living with HIV. In Swaziland, a mere 2 hour drive from our location, 1 in 4 adults are HIV positive. This is the highest adult HIV prevalence rate in the world.2
These numbers are staggering. The effects of the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa will be felt for generations to come. Ten Thousand Homes exists to create a sense of Hope and Homes for the children growing up in the wake of the HIV/AIDS crisis. We believe we can make a difference, one child at a time.
We are on a mission to build HOME. We recognize that homes are the backbone of a strong community. Providing HOME is more than putting a family in a house. It is creating that sense of belonging that everyone needs and desires. It is a truth we can all embrace-we all want to know that we are loved.
Our vision is ordinary people making an extraordinary investment into the lives of the poor and vulnerable. While this vision is too large for us alone; we believe that everyone can play a part. We invite you to come see for yourself and experience both the beauty and the heartbreak of the communities we serve.
