Community of Masemouse complete Fish Farm Project

Anglo European School send their congratulations to the Community of Masemouse on the completion of their Fish Farm and feel very proud that, they helped lay the foundations for this sustainable development project.

In July 2015, the first group of Anglo students visited Malalea as part of what will become an ongoing relationship between the Anglo and Malalea.  10 Anglo students and 2 members of staff accompanied Ken from Africa’s Gift to work for 10 days with the Community in Malalea and Masemouse.  They spent time digging irrigation ditches, clearing reservoirs, harvesting and pruning, teaching and painting at the local school and laying the foundations for this fish farm, a sustainable development project.   The people of Lesotho made a lasting impression on all the students and they feel very proud to see this project completed and to also know that the irrigation ditches and reservoirs they worked tirelessly on helped retain water during the severe drought that Lesotho has suffered over the last few months.

The next group of students will soon be preparing to return to Lesotho in 2016 and will be working hard to fund raise for the Malalea Development Trust for future projects.
