WHO WE ARE
HopeAlive268 is a not-for-profit Christian organization committed to improving the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the orphaned, vulnerable and abused children of Swaziland, Africa. The organization has had ties to Swaziland since 1945. Our ties have led us to a deep love, respect and appreciation for the country and its people.
So much of who we are is based on relationships that go back almost 70 years, when the Hetrick family first stepped foot into this small, beautiful nation, often referred to as "the Swiss Alps of Africa." At that moment a sweet relationship began that would bloom into a great admiration and passion for the people of Swaziland. Though ravished by drought and death, it is the unwavering strength and gentleness of the Swazi people that shines through and deepens our respect and desire to see this nation thrive and become a beacon of light to all the world.

Look at the nations and watch - and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. - Habakkuk 1:5
We have an opportunity to be "utterly amazed" by our God! How very fortunate we are that God has invited us to be a part of this! The things He has already done amaze us, and we hope that the thought of what He will continue to do ignites a fire and passion is your soul as well.
