17 participants from SHU on a social justice interaction visit to South Africa and Lesotho, 16 June - 2 July 2023
Date: 16 June - 2 July 2023
Lesotho is one of the poorest countries and has one of the lowest life expectancies for women in the world and offers few educational opportunities for children, especially after primary school age. In collaboration with Africa’s Gift Charity students will be involved in developing cooking bag production in Lesotho (cooking bags which work as slow cookers have a direct impact on the reduction of time spent on cooking over an open fire, allowing women to spend on other activities than cooking, have a positive environmental impact due to reduction in water and wood/gas use, and much more). Moreover, students will take the bags into the community and conduct surveys on the use and impact of the bags. In addition, students will be involved in human rights teaching and workshops for the community.
In order to secure a place on the trip students are required to pay a deposit.
