Update on our Children’s Village

As each day passes, we grow closer to bringing to life one of our most exciting and ambitious projects: The Children’s Village. While maintaining our other operations, the team has made much progress, and we’d love to share it with you!

Despite facing some challenges due to the rainy season, we are pleased to inform you that the project is progressing steadily. Thanks to the dedication and expertise of our contractor, all work on the new terraced ground has successfully endured the heavy rains, ensuring the project remains on track.

A new focus

At present, our focus has shifted towards essential infrastructural necessities, namely water, sewer, and electricity. We are actively collaborating with esteemed partners such as the Maloti Rotary Club, the Bricktown Rotary Club, and other Oklahoma-based Rotary Clubs to secure the funds required for the water and sewer systems.

Through a Rotary International grant, we strive to cover the costs associated with these vital components, ensuring the sustainability and functionality of the Children’s Homes for generations.

Further need

Simultaneously, efforts are underway to raise funds for the electricity supply to the site. We are pleased to share that we have already secured 30% of the required funds for this purpose, marking a significant milestone in our journey. However, we still require an additional $39,000 to fulfill this critical need and provide the children with access to electricity, enhancing their quality of life and enabling a safer and more conducive environment for their growth and development.

Your role

As valued supporters of our cause, we extend our deepest gratitude for your unwavering commitment and generosity toward improving the lives of vulnerable children in Lesotho. Your large and small contributions are pivotal in bringing our vision to fruition and empowering these children with hope, dignity, and opportunity.

We remain dedicated to transparency and accountability throughout this journey, and we assure you that every donation is utilized efficiently and effectively to achieve our shared goals.

If you have any questions or feedback or want to engage further with our project, please do not hesitate to contact us. Your continued support is invaluable, and we look forward to celebrating future milestones together as we strive to make a lasting difference in the lives of these precious children.

A dream derailed

Ben, the youngest of five siblings, found himself burdened with responsibility early in life following the death of his parents. Living in his family’s homestead in Lesotho with his eldest brother and sister, he had to drop out of high school to care for his ailing mother, relying on odd jobs to support his dwindling family finances. A skilled soccer player, Ben dreamed of a life beyond his immediate struggles, a dream that seemed within reach when a recruiter approached him with a life-changing offer.

When desperation is exploited

Sarah lived a modest life in Sri Lanka, caring for her ailing mother alongside her sister. Her father passed away, leaving the two sisters to shoulder the financial responsibilities of their family. While her sister worked in insurance, Sarah found employment in local clothing production factories. The meager earnings were insufficient to cover their mother’s escalating medical expenses, pushing Sarah to seek better opportunities.
