SOS Children’s Villages of Lesotho was initiated in the early 1990’s. Lesotho, like many countries in the world, have growing number of orphaned, abandoned and neglected children. These children are left without a home and family to care for and love them. Armed with SOS principles of family, home caring and sharing, representatives of SOS kinderdorf international visited Lesotho to determine for a children’s village and the feasibility of establishing one.
A Technical Assistance between the Kingdom of Lesotho and SOS Kinderdorf International was signed with the Ministry of Employment and Social Welfare in Maseru Lesotho on the 12th November 1990 after extensive negotiations. On 22nd July 1993 was admitted as a full member of SOS Kinderdorf International. As a result of warm productive engagement with the Government of Lesotho, the Maseru village at Lithabaneng became operational in 1994.
