Quality affordable day care for low income earners, such as factory workers who earn less than $150 a month, is hard to find. For this reason, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) of Lesotho have partnered with rise to design a model day care center that would act as a benchmark for other day care centers to follow best practices and improve the quality of care of children. However, until funds have been raised to build the model day care center, CRS has commissioned rise to design low cost improvements for existing day care centers in Maputsoe, an industrial area 2 hours north of Maseru. This project was led by our 2018 alumni with the assistance of some 2019 alumni.
