Why are “green” or environmentally friendly projects so important to TTL?
- The first, and perhaps most obvious reason, is that TTL is being a responsible local organization by using less of the Lesotho’s limited resources.
- The second reason is these projects promote TTL’s long term financial sustainability and ultimately help save baby’s lives. This is a bold statement, but here is the bottom line: by reducing overhead costs such as water, heat, and electricity, the more TTL can spend directly on resources to save the lives of beautiful Basotho babies.

We appreciate Gummersbach for helping with our “green” projects – because we know, ultimately, the savings realized goes directly towards saving lives, one child at a time. Vielen Dank to Gummersbach!
