For men and women with life controlling habits

What began as Teen Challenge program in April 1997 has now grown into fully fledged rehabilitation centre for both men and women with life-controlling habits. Our program is based on a twelve-month resident based program, Christ-centred, and a discipleship-based regimen of restoration. As a fully certified affiliate of Global Teen Challenge, Emafini Teen Challenge Discipleship Centre utilizes a treatment protocol whose success has been proven in 58 different countries for over 51 years. This track record of success has baffled the medical community and amazed investigators and makes Teen Challenge Swaziland a well-recognized resource to the community and concerned people everywhere.

 “In my own life I’ve known such deep hurt and rejection and God has clearly shown me personally how to have victory over my past and walk in forgiveness. I stand amazed in how He now places me here to love and care for these beautiful girls and to also show them how to find that victory, and ultimately that freedom, through Christ.”

Teen Challenge Women's Centre, Elusitweni  

 In September 2007 the first resident was accommodated at Elusitweni Help Centre. Now, the centre is lead and ran by Thobile Mnisi, who is fully equipped with love and patience. The vision of Elusitweni Women’s Centre is to see abuse diminish and families made whole again; to ensure that women who are vulnerable and hurting are ministered to before they get involved with drugs, crime or promiscuity; and to educate them about the love of Christ and how to live in victory.
