What we do

We raise money and foster support in the UK, in order to fund tuition fees for young men and women in Lesotho to help them break the cycle of poverty through education. Without education they have no vocational skills. Without skills, they cannot earn an income. Without an income they cannot educate their children.

The skills they learn with your support equip them for life, so that they can provide support for themselves and their families, and help boost the skilled labour pool of a developing nation.

To date, we have supported over 1,000 students to get an education and help break this cycle.

“After I complete the course I have chosen I prefer to work hard for myself in order to help other people who are in need like me and change the life of the generation of Lesotho.”
