Swaziland Single Mothers Organisation (SWASMO) is a small organisation of volunteers who work with mobilising and educating poor single mothers in the poorest areas of Manzini, Swaziland, in self-reliance, self-awareness and health-related issues. The organisation was founded in January 2009 by Beatrice Bitchong.
SWASMO's projects incorporate income generating projects and education on agricultural skills, management, sexual matters such as contraception, and family planning. The income generating projects include the making of clothes and scarves, handy craft items and a vegetable garden. SWASMO also trains the group members in facilitation skills to ensure that the project can eventually continue without outside help, and its projects are participatory in nature. SWASMO also offers individual and group counselling, home visits, and food and clothes support.
