Lesotho Blog

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.

Today, half of our group finished painting the second school, Lichecheng. The other half continued building up the community center. In the morning, we added two swings and a fire pole to the playground at the community center.

Today, our group went to St. Anthony Primary School to continue work. It was an enjoyable day of soccer, ball playing, and painting. However, the part of the day that stood out the most to us was our visit to Raboletsi High School.
