Providing shelter and safety for vulnerable children

After her mother’s passing, Mapaseka and her little sister had nowhere to go. Their relatives weren’t capable of being their reliable, full-time guardians. Fortunately, the Beautiful Dream Society’s staff knew Mapaseka because her mother had previously worked at the BDS children’s home.

In light of all this, BDS took Mapaseka and her sister under their wing to provide proper care and healing.

Mapaseka was still very young and grieving the loss of her mother when she first arrived. Now, she is more energetic and happy, as a teenager should be! With all these good feelings came curiosity and an eagerness to learn new things.

Mapaseka loves cooking and always spoils her BDS mother with delicious treats. Mapaseka’s younger sister is also a delight to be around! The two sisters are very close. Mapaseka loves, cherishes, and always looks out for her little sister.

Although Mapaseka encountered a minor hiccup in her academics and had to repeat a grade, she is now performing very well. The love and support she receives from her BDS siblings and mothers in the home has encouraged her and given her the patience to hold on and not give up.

The grim reality of sexual assault in Lesotho

Lesotho has some of the worst rape statistics in the world, second only to Botswana. There are 89.2 reported accounts of sexual assault per 100,000 people in Lesotho, and that does not take into account the thousands of incidents that go unreported each year.

What happens when an adoption doesn’t work out?

Lesotho has a large population of orphans, largely due to the poverty and lack of resources in the region. Some of these children are lucky enough to be adopted or reunited with distant family members, but those situations do not work out for everyone.
