Lesotho children with their lead teachers

Lesotho

School Aid has been working with its partners in Lesotho since 2010. Since then we’ve reached some of the country’s most remote schools, shipping over 94,000 books to 137 schools which support 59,022 eager children, including a number of orphans and vulnerable children.

We introduced a programme of school reading clubs in 2017 which have proved to be a very successful way of reaching children in remote areas. The children start each session with energising activities, then move on to a carefully selected story, and as it unfolds they’re encouraged to participate through drama, crafts and creative writing. These clubs help participating primary schools to maximise the potential of their resources, and acted as a stepping stone to their involvement in the Lesotho launch of our school library development programme.
