How does an African village in eSwatini achieve sustainability? In 2006 AIDS had ravished the adult community in Swaziland and babies and children suffered the worst impact. Bulembu started as an orphanage that took in these abandoned and otherwise orphaned children and sought to give them a life of hope and joy. Built on the site of an abandoned asbestos mining town, Bulembu now stands as a shining example of what can be accomplished to raise up children in Africa.

In 2017 Partners in Action embarked on a partnership with Mission Africa to bring new agriculture methods and a complement of nutritious crops to improve health and wellness in the impoverished area around Sapele, Delta State, Nigeria. The team traveled to Nigeria in May to perform a Needs Assessment and determine how to bring economic activity to the region. Our goal is simple - develop a sustainable economy that will bring people out of poverty.
In 2006 PIA, through an International partnership, acquired an abandoned town in Swaziland called Bulembu. Today Bulembu is a thriving town with numerous business enterprises. Orphaned children receive food, education, and the hope for a future. No child is left behind in Bulembu.
In November 2017 a team from Partners in Action traveled to Zambia to evaluate the opportunity to develop sustainable business enterprises. PIA has funded an out-grower cow-pea enterprise and is currently evaluating the next phase of opportunity - Community Development in the Namwala District.
Partners in Action has provided continuous support to Suubi Child Development, an organization that has cared for and schooled impoverished children in Suubi, Uganda. In January 2018 we opened a new school for children in higher income families that pay for schooling. The income from this school will fund the needs of the orphanage and school for our children in need.

After retirement I realized that I had received more good in my life than I had given to others. It became important to me to give back. I am currently supporting Partners in Action to communicate its message so that others like me can find a way to bring their personal resources and talents to philanthropreneurial ventures.
