The TTLF Fellow is a representative of the North American organisation Touching Tiny Lives Foundation. Based for one year in Mokhotlong, Lesotho, the TTLF Fellow serves in an administrative support capacity for the Basotho charity Touching Tiny Lives (TTL).
With three kids leaving the safehome and meetings and errands in Maseru, last week was busy. Friday capped it all of with three groups of visitors coming to TTL!
First, our partners at Sentebale arrived with their supporter Ein Herz Fur Kinder in a helicopter on TTL’s front door step. It was an opportunity for Ein Herz Fur Kinder and Sentebale’s UK staff to learn more about TTL and the types of challenges faced by OVCs in the mountains of Lesotho.
This was followed in the afternoon with a meeting with TTL’s Board so that the TTL could staff meet the new members and provide them with a brief orientation. It was great to hear how committed everyone is to supporting vulnerable children in Mokhotlong and we’re looking forward to working together in the new year.
And then at the end of the day, TTL received a visit from the local branch of Standard Lesotho Bank. They have generously donated maize meal that TTL will be able to distribute to our clients to improve families’ food stability while they are waiting for the crops to come in. With the continuing drought this year, the crops are already very far behind and so this food is badly needed by families in the region.
Thank you to Standard Lesotho Bank for their generous donation!!
