Volunteer Lesotho

Its hard to accept that the mountain kingdom of Lesotho faces extinction as AIDS/HIV has ravaged the population of just two million with a quarter of all adults having the virus and half of all women in the country being infected.

With a life expectancy of under 40yrs Lesotho is ranked in 158th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 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.

Its 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.
