Vlog from Lesotho – 6

Kate just returned to Canada after an impactful and busy month in Lesotho! During her time she was able to celebrate staff milestones and witness firsthand the transformative impact our programs continue to have on individuals of all ages. From individual support sessions to community outreach efforts, one thing is abundantly clear: Help Lesotho continues to be a beacon of hope and empowerment!

In Kate’s 4th Vlog from Lesotho you’ll see a fun convergence of Help Lesotho programs. Our edu-tainment group, GIRL4ce, performed for participants of our Grandmother and Young Mother Programs. It was a hot day in the sun (hence the many umbrellas you’ll see!), but the energy was high as everyone rallied around the common goal of ending child marriage in the community.

Below are a collection of Kate’s photos from the day!

Sponsor a student, change a life!

Sponsor a student, change a life!

Almost 2000 students in Lesotho have received sponsorship for their high school education through Help Lesotho’s Student Sponsorship Program. High school poses a myriad of challenges for any student, yet in Lesotho, a many are either a single or double orphaned and from impoverished families, intensifying the hurdles they face in completing their education. Below are some examples of how Student Sponsorship can positively affect the life of an individual both while going to school and into the future!

Tlotlisang, Child Sponsorship Program

 “I have just completed my bachelor of pharmacy (Honours) from the National University of Lesotho (NUL) and secured myself a job as a pharmacist, those are my biggest achievements. I have always been a big dreamer and when I got sponsored, I did not take the opportunity lightly and did my best in my academic performance. This is one in a million opportunity, it’s life changing. As a CSP alumni I hope those who come after me understand how blessed they are to be part of this loving family; Help Lesotho. I hope they work harder to secure themselves a bright future. I still want to further my studies in medicine.” 

Hlampola, sponsored student

Hlampola, 17

Hlampola is a determined 17-year-old recent graduate of Khethisa High School. Before sponsorship, Hlampolo was constantly worried about how he would cover his school fees. Cared for primarily by his grandparents, Hlampola’s family was only able to contribute very little towards his education.

Thanks to your donation to pay his exam fees, Hlampola was able to stop worrying about paying his school fees and instead used his energy on studying. He is so grateful that your support enabled him to finish his studies.

Hlampola now has a bright student with dreams of attending college and pursuing medical studies in South Africa.

Libuseng, 17

Libuseng is on the path to success! After recently graduating from Khethisa High School, she is an example of what hard work and persistence can accomplish. Libuseng’s dedication to her studies is evident in her academic achievements, as she secured an impressive 4th position in the final exams!

It is because of your support that this bright, young student was able to graduate. As Libuseng has been raised by a single mother, coming up with the school fees to graduate would have been impossible for her.

Libuseng dreams of pursuing a career in chemical engineering with a focus on mining.
