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.

 

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.

 

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. 

 

QMC board members return to Qholaqhoe every year in February to work with the managers of the Orphan Garden and with staff and students at Qholaqhoe High School. Over the years a trusting and effective relationship has developed.

 

Our mission is to benefit the people of Qholaqhoe, Lesotho by providing financial grants to fund education, cultivate sustainable farming practices, and to alleviate hunger.

 

To learn the latest on what has been accomplished over these past five years go to our Orphan Garden and Scholarship program pages.
