Tackling the barriers to gender equality. Lesotho faces a number of challenges in achieving equality between men and women.

The Welsh Government and Government of Lesotho have set out to increase gender equality in Lesotho. In 2014, a link was made between Chwarae Teg and FIDA ( Federation of Women Lawyers ) and we’re now working together to help women achieve and prosper in Lesotho.

“When women know their rights, they can take steps to claim their rights”
