    Guto visited Lesotho when he was 9 years old and running the marathon means he can combine two things he loves running his first marathon. Aled's school has benefitted from a link with Lesotho and he wants to support this vital link running his first marathon. Carwyn wants to raise funds to promote global learning in the classroom. This will be his thirdd marathon - a veteran! Lisa is a keen runner who wants to support Dolen Cymru's work in Lesotho. Being part of the school exchange programme, visiting Lesotho and hosting teachers here I fell in love with the country and the people. I want to do as much as possible to help.

About Dolen Cymru Wales Lesotho Link

Dolen Cymru is an independent charity which fostered a unique country to country link between Wales and Lesotho.  Since 1985 life-changing partnerships have been created between communities, schools, health organisations and individuals.

Identified by the UN as a least developed country, Lesotho is a beautiful mountainous country known locally as the 'Kingdom in the Sky' or the 'Mountain Kingdom.' With nearly a quarter of its population living with HIV/AIDS and life expectancy down to 47, our partnership work can make a real difference to enable children and families achieve their potential.

 

"In health, education, environment and religion the partnership with Wales has been a real source of inspiration and hope to our people."

Kenneth Tsekoa, Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Lesotho
