| Friends of Lesotho|
Friends of Lesotho gladly accepts donations. Our operating expenses are covered by member's annual dues and some Board/Committee fundraising activities, so any extra donations are used entirely to support projects in Lesotho. The specific projects funded change over time depending on the requests we receive and feedback we get, but in general FOL supports the following types of projects:
including Memorial Scholarships
- Tuition Assistance
The Morija Museum
Peace Corps Volunteer Sponsored Projects
Community Development Projects
Other types of projects may be funded as new opportunities arise. The FOL Donations Committee considers requests for funding and makes recommendations to the Board about the distribution of funds. You may specify that a donation be directed to a particular project or type of project or you can leave it to the discretion of the Donations Committee. Please visit the Letters page or the Lesotho Health Partnership page to see what your donation can do.

An email from TAP (6/26/07):
Today marked the end of another TAP cycle. This year 106 applications were submitted and 100 were accepted with us granting 57,062 Rand to 29 volunteers. I just want to say thanks for supporting these kids. The work that you all are doing is changing the lives of these students. Reading through the essays submitted by students and by the volunteers who nominated these kids, it is clear that these are some of the best and brightest students in their class. The impact this money will have on their lives will surely be profound.
