Kenya is a country of many contrasts, from its landscape to people, and more so its social and economic inequalities. Forty two percent of its population of 44 million, live below the poverty line.
Two-thirds of Swazis live in poverty, most of them in rural areas. Nearly 27 per cent are HIV-positive, giving Swaziland the highest HIV prevalence rate in the world. Nearly 125,000 Swazi children have lost at least one parent to the epidemic.
