About

We believe there is so much uncovered within young people in Lesotho

We are determined to uncover it

Our three pronged strategy is to; Initiate Direct Impact Start-up Projects, Ignite Policy Debates regarding entrepreneurship development, organize and coordinate various Community Impact Organisations to carryout development projects. We also value and welcome ideas on how we can better foster entrepreneurship development in Lesotho. We recognize the change investment will bring immediately in engaged young people; the change in their communities and most importantly; we are cognisant of a direct link between what we do locally and the broader national development agenda. This is encapsulated in the National Strategic Development Plan, and in other multinational development initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the African Agenda for 2063.
