Volunteer Lesotho

 

Volunteer Work Lesotho


It's hard to accept that the mountain kingdom of Lesotho faces extinction as AIDS/HIV has ravaged the population of just 2.125 million (2019) with a quarter of all adults having the virus and half of all women in the country being infected. With a life expectancy of 53.70 years (2018), Lesotho is ranked in 165th place out of 189 countries and territories in 2019 in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country. One in three children is an orphan, 40% of under fives are malnourished and the country they will grow up in faces water scarcity with the UN estimating that just 3% of the country's land will be farmable within 25 years.



It's understandable therefore that most volunteer work programs in Lesotho focus on caring for orphans, teaching projects and agricultural sustainability as well as construction work addressing the country's urgent water needs. Other volunteer work involves supporting families headed by children themselves whose parents have passed as well as securing and promoting the right of girls and women.


Please note that many volunteer opportunities in Lesotho have been put on hold because of travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully they will be back up and running soon. In the meantime, if you run or know of a volunteer work project in Lesotho let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
