This project works with teachers, learners and the local community in Thaba Tseka to teach the importance of hand-washing and how to build tippy taps and set up rainwater harvesting.
This was important before the coronavirus pandemic but has now come into its own. Our partners the Lesotho Red Cross Society have been travelling to villages, correctional units and shops to explain what the virus is and how they can help prevent it spreading. This is crucial even though there are no reported cases yet in Lesotho.
We are pleased that DFID has agreed for our programme to be repurposed for this COVID response. This has meant that the work on hand-washing has spread further than originally intended.
Thanks also to the Waterloo Foundation which has donated towards this response.
