    Connecting Classrooms 2019

    Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning is a UK government and British Council education initiative. The programme enables a teacher from a UK school to take part in an exchange visit with a partner school from Africa, Asia or the Americas and for the schools to work on classroom-based projects together, with the aim of giving young people a unique and hands-on international learning experience. 
    Wales and Lesotho have been twinned for 34 years and with the help and support from the charity Dolen Cymru, partnerships have been set up between many schools in the two countries and opportunities provided for strong links to be established.

About Dolen

What do we do?

We help to create lasting, positive change in the southern African Kingdom of Lesotho – and in communities here at home in Wales.

How do we do it?

Link by link. We introduce professionals from schools, hospitals and other organisations who share ideas and approaches. So one teacher learns a new technique from another – and she then goes and teaches that technique to her colleagues, who go on to show others how to do it too? Because they collaborate, schools improve, communities improve and whole districts improve. Kids grow up empowered, with their own ideas to share.

Where are we based?

Our UK office is in Cardiff but we work with communities and professionals across the whole of Wales.


"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
