Welcome to
Qholaqhoe Mountain Connections 
 
a program established to help the people of Lesotho, Southern Africa.


 

QM Connections was established in 2009 in response the dire needs of the population of the rural Qholaqhoe Mountain region of the country of Lesotho, a third world country geographically surrounded by South Africa.

 

Our mission is to enhance educational opportunities students who attend Qholaqhoe High School. Our newly established Community College Scholarship Program offers a few outstanding students with the opportunity to go on to college or university.


 

Lesotho is a mountainous country, mostly barren and plagued with erosion and the resulting poor soil quality. 75% of the population of 2 million people live in remote, rural areas and are subsistence farmers. Less than 10 percent of the country’s acreage is tillable meaning that rural families struggle to survive on small plots of land with low yields.

 

Farming families eke out a living in the challenging terrain.  Currently there are severe drought conditions throughout sub-Saharan Africa. The shortage of food is acute.

 

According to UNAIDS Lesotho has the third highest HIV prevalence in the world - just under one in four people in the country are living with HIV.
