CARE's work in Lesotho
CARE has worked since 1968 in Lesotho, where high HIV prevalence and a lack of access to basic healthcare and education help perpetuate cycles of underdevelopment. Youth and women are disproportionately affected by HIV and poor access to food, quality education and a decent livelihood. In 2015, we handed over the running of our programmes to a newly-created local NGO – Care for the Basotho – as part of our commitment to support local civil society. They will continue to implement programmes in healthcare, HIV, economic empowerment, democratic governance and food security, while we advocate at regional and global levels on the issues facing Lesotho's people.
