E3’s vision is to bring transformation to communities affected by poverty and HIV and AIDS in Southern Africa.

E3 stands for “ENGAGE, EMPOWER, ENTRUST”, which means we:

  • ENGAGE with local churches and faith-based organisations because they can be the most effective agents for change in their communities. They understand the issues first-hand and how to respond in a sustainable way.
  • EMPOWER their leaders through training (Emerging Leaders programme) and financial support because the challenges they face are considerable as they work to change the lives of people affected by poverty and HIV and AIDS.
  • ENTRUST the process of transformation to them: they know how to respond to the social issues around them by sharing the Gospel in word and action. In particular, E3 helps enable HIV and AIDS support initiatives and microfinance to improve livelihoods.

E3 works in Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Malawi, South Africa, the Kingdom of eSwatini (formerly Swaziland), Zambia and Zimbabwe. Read more about our partners.
