Phelisanong Lesotho Project
We have partnered with the non-profit Sentebale to design and build a much needed kitchen for the Phelisanong Centre for Children with Disabilities based in the beautiful rural mountainous town of Pitseng in Lesotho. Currently there is no kitchen and 200 meals have to be prepared in the outdoors come rain or sunshine starting at 4a.m with the collection of firewood as fuel for the outdoor stoves. The kitchen will not only impact the lives of the centre staff a lot easier but it will also enable the center to start offering catering facilities in the conference facility as part of their social enterprise activities. In addition we will be setting up a new water supply system so that the children can once again bathe in the bathrooms as opposed to wash basins since their pipes have been running dry ever since the main water supply has been cut off to the center almost two years ago. Phelisanong provides a home, family and community for orphans and children living with intellectual and physical disabilities, HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. We will be working closely with the surrounding community in the implementation of this project.
