Wittenberg University has built a relationship with the people of the African kingdom of Lesotho, thanks to the leadership and expertise of Professor of History Scott Rosenberg, who served in the Peace Corps in Lesotho before joining the university's faculty.

Hi everyone! Today was our last day at the worksites! A few of us stayed behind this morning to take a short hike down to the waterfall behind our grounds.

Today some of us were at Good Shepard finishing up our projects from the day before. Good Shepard is a home for teen mothers and their children where they are able to receive education, child care, and much more.
