Books for Lesotho Inc.

Books for Lesotho Inc.

The Kingdom of Lesotho is an African nation with a population of 1.8m people.  It is amongst the poorest nations of the world.  Its future is dependent, in part, on improving the level of education for their children, and one important facet of their education is developing their literacy.

What do we do?

Books for Lesotho Inc. has a vision for every school in Lesotho having a library so that students have the opportunity to develop their literacy and language skills for pleasure and learning.

Each year, Books for Lesotho sends books to its partner in Lesotho - the Transformation Resource Centre (TRC). TRC then distributes the books to schools.  It also monitors the ways in which schools use the books and that the books are being well used.  In the last 10 years, over 102,000 books have been shipped to Lesotho and distributed to 61 schools and organisations.
