Lesotho, a small kingdom located in the center of South Africa, is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes found on the African continent. Despite being one of the poorest countries in the world, Lesotho is blessed with a precious resource: water. During wintertime, the highlands of Lesotho are covered with pristine snow and in its valleys, visitors can find one of Africa’s few ski slopes popular amongst locals and South Africans alike.
But there’s more to Lesotho than just its beautiful sceneries and winter activities. For centuries, it has been a land of warriors and resistance fighters who have fought hard for their independence against colonial forces. In recent years, however, this small country has faced an even bigger challenge: water scarcity. With growing population rates and climate change threatening its resources, Lesotho has had to come up with innovative solutions to ensure its future prosperity. This topic is explored in depth in the documentary “The Women Who Fought for Water” which follows two women from Lesotho as they work towards providing clean drinking water to their communities.
Lesotho is a small but beautiful country tucked away in the heart of South Africa. Despite its current state as one of the poorest nations in the world, it remains an incredible place full of natural beauty and amazing landscapes. With
