Community Partnership
Hampton, NB, Canada - Piggs Peak Swaziland

An AIDS epidemic, on a scale unknown anywhere else in the world, is devastating Swaziland. In the face of their suffering, the Swazi people cling to an ideal they call “buntfu”, the essence of humanity that tells us we are all connected and should care for each other.

In Hampton, we are proud of our community spirit and we know that, as humans, our community is the world. Our neighbours are not only the people next door but also the people of Africa, the people of Swaziland...the people of Piggs Peak. In the spirit of buntfu, we are compelled to care for our neighbours. 

 


Hope in Action

In 2017, the Partnership is supporting school fees for 150 high school students. 

 
Girls latrine constructed to help with gender inequality. 

 
Grandmother Partnership between grandmothers (and grand others) 

 
Proceeds of the annual Coffee House for Swaziland go toward the Tyler Henderson Swaziland Scholarship of Hope. 

 
Funds were raised for irrigation equipment, fencing, fertilizer, seeds, and a rototiller to be shared within the community. 

 
 
We help the needy people in Piggs Peak by providing food, clothing, shoes, books, and school bags. Sometimes it’s the little things that are most appreciated.

News from John Lovett


"The partnership between the Town of Hampton and Piggs Peak in Swaziland is exactly the kind of response that needs to happen to beat the pandemic. You can't imagine what it means to a community in Africa to know that they have the support and assistance of Canadians."
Stephen Lewis, UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa


We believe it is important to keep the Hampton community up to date on what is happening in the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership.

Help Wanted !!

The Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership was established in 2005. Since that time, the partnership has put hope into action in many ways. Through the tremendous support of the community, we are now raising enough money to keep 80 students in school as well as supporting many other projects in Piggs Peak, Swaziland.

 

And we want to do more! Would you like to be part of changing the lives of our Swazi neighbours? The Partnership is looking for people to join our Fundraising Committee and Communications Committee in a volunteer capacity.

 

If you are interested in helping out, please contact committee member Jill Darrah at sjdarrah@nb.sympatico.ca or, in the evening, at 832-0815.
