South Africa has the highest epidemic (5.6million)


Adults living with HIV/AIDS in Swaziland (Highest % in world)
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 Home for the most vulnerable in the wake of the HIV/AIDS crisis.  We believe we can make a difference, one person at a time.

heart-icon Why Homes?


We are on a mission to build HOME. Home is more than four walls and a roof, but it is a great place to start. 1.6 billion people are without adequate shelter and we are on a mission to fix this. We believe that proper shelter is essential to a sense of safety and security.
This is where we start, safety and security, but not where we stop. We are committed to do all we can that the most vulnerable have access to nourishment, education, and health care.
Through generosity and hard work providing practical services, together, we are building futures!

Child Headed Households

In southern Africa, where Ten Thousand Homes began it’s work, over the last 3 decades families have been devastated by the plight of the HIV/Aids. This crisis has left many young Africans prematurely filling the role of parent in what we call child headed homes. These child-headed families or child-headed households are families in which a minor (child or adolescent) has become the head of the household. We have a  mission to help and support these young families.
