Lesotho Blog

Wittenberg University has built a relationship with the people of the African kingdom of Lesotho, thanks to the leadership and expertise of Professor of History Scott Rosenberg, who served in the Peace Corps in Lesotho before joining the university's faculty.

Twenty-eight Wittenberg students are spending a month in the Mountain Kingdom doing a variety of service projects. We hope that you will enjoy following our blog, and that you are able to share in our experience.

Carnival at Baylor Clinic
Today some of us were at Good Shepard finishing up our projects from the day before. Good Shepard is a home for teen mothers and their children where they are able to receive education, child care, and much more.
A group of us went to a local Catholic Church relatively close to the trading post. We were not quite sure what to except when we first arrived - and we realized that we were about half an hour early.
Today, we had our first taste of goodbyes on this trip as we spent our last full day in Ramabanta. The whole group had the chance to work on constructing the community center and finishing details on the soup kitchen paintings.
Today, half of our group finished painting the second school, Lichecheng. The other half continued building up the community center. In the morning, we added two swings and a fire pole to the playground at the community center.
Dumela bo mme and bo ntate,
After a short drive through the mountains and down a bumpy road, our vans arrived on site at a school in a village. Today was spent painting—a hobby I love to partake in while at home, but not a skill I outwardly share with others very often.
Today we began our second week here in Ramabanta. We returned to the village outside our compound to build a community center.
Lumela homies!  Kate Hollern here, I would like to start off todays blog with a huge happy Father's Day!
Lumela Bomme le BoNtate, Today marked the end of a productive week, and we have so many things of which we are proud...
