Imvelo Eswatini is a fusion of passion and creativity, tradition and modernity, social commitment and love for Swaziland. Imvelo Eswatini was established in 2007 by Manzini Youth Care (MYC), a Salesian, Catholic NGO working with marginalized youth and their families in Swaziland. The Salesian order was established by Saint John Bosco, and it was his mother, Mama Margarita, who was the inspiration behind Imvelo Eswatini. Early widowed, Mama Margarita struggled daily to bring up her own children before going on to support her son in caring for hundreds of orphaned boys. The director of MYC, Fr Larry Mc Donnell drew a parallel between this remarkable woman and the women in Swaziland. Imvelo Eswatini was developed in consultation with these women and is dedicated to providing flexible work opportunities, paying a fair and sustainable source of income, enabling each woman to provide for her family.
