The Village of Lesotho

Semonkong, Lesotho

29.8421° S, 28.0497° E

You've arrived safely to The Village of Lesotho. You're standing on a mountainside. Sheep bleat and the wind whistles past your ears. It is an obscure place. Beside you stands a Herd Boy. He wears gumboots on his feet. They have holes in them, revealing toes.

Around his shoulders flaps a colourful woollen 

blanket her wears like a cloak.

You share no language, yet, he is a member of

The Village, just like you.  The Herd Boy beckons

and you follow him down the steep descent

towards a cluster of buildings...

Help a Herd Boy, buy some boots

Here are some of the faces you might see along your journey. Be sure to wave hello!

The Village Caretaker

DSC_0689.JPG

Retha is the benevolent visionary leader of Semonkong Children's Care Centre, or as we call it, The Village of Lesotho. She is the tireless mother of 60 children.

Her focus is creating sustainability around The Village of Lesotho, specially around agriculture and enterprise. 

Retha recently was hospitalised with COVID-19. We are grateful she is now home recovering in isolation in Semonkong. If you'd be willing to contribute to her orphanage's running costs while she recovers, it would be hugely appreciated.
