The BET was set up in 1982 when a group of students from Imperial College London, visited Lesotho and were struck by the lack of education which could help people break out of the cycle of poverty.
‘Basotho’ is the name by which the people of Lesotho are known.
We are a voluntary organisation, so over 95% of the money donated by you, goes directly towards paying tuition fees.
To date (2013), we have supported over 800 students.
The BET is a UK registered charity number 285451.
It is registered at 42 Ridley Avenue, Ealing, London W13 9XW, United Kingdom
