At the new Women Center, women come together to talk freely, follow trainings, counsel and comfort each other, and sell home made products.
The Women In Network (WIN) programme joins 17 coalitions of rural women in Swaziland. The goal of this project is to teach them about their rights and how to stand up for them. The Network also promotes political representation of rural women at local and national levels, together with other organisations. Their focus is on fighting cultural norms that downplay repression of and violence against women. Two new Women Centers are safe spaces to talk, train, counsel and sell home made products.
The programme strengthens the collaboration of civil society organisations and local authorities with a view to reinforcing their ability in the provision of service delivery to the most vulnerable populations in pursuit of poverty alleviation. It reinforces the capacities of non-State Actors (strategic planning, implementation and monitoring of poverty alleviation projects), fosters a more coherent and informed approach to poverty issues to improve the policy dialogue between State and non-State Actors.

New bridges and upgraded roads improve profits and lives of small sugar cane farmers in Swaziland. Replacing gravel roads and a low hanging, one-way bridge with new infrastructure has improved efficiency for the farmers. Cane haulage time and distance between field and mill are shorter. Fresh sugar cane is cut and burnt in the field and has to be taken to the mill as soon as possible to keep its quality. This 'burn-to-crush' time is best kept under three days. Therefore, getting the cane faster to the mill increases its quality and consequently its price.
