Every year, the UN invites us to celebrate the word-wide unsung heroes by celebrating International Day of Rural Women on October 15th.
is a day to mark the important work done by rural women in the areas of
agriculture and rural development by improving food security and
eradicating rural poverty.
TTL works in the most rural and
under-served areas of Lesotho. The women (or Bo'M'e) of Lesotho are
truly the backbone of the country. At TTL, we witness Bo'M'e work
tirelessly to provide for their children, grandchildren, families, and
neighbors. Whether it's trekking over mountain terrain to get their
children to a clinic, collecting wood, tending the garden, or cooking
for the family, the Bo'M'e in rural Lesotho never cease to amaze us.
Bo'M'e are our biggest partners at TTL and today we say a huge REA LEBOHA for everything you do!
