Lesotho Overview

We construct simple yet durable two-room houses with concrete blocks and corrugated iron sheets roofs. A ventilated pit latrine is constructed to improve sanitation. Additionally, our local team advocates for secure land tenure. We initiate land ownership processes for the households to ensure they legally own the land before we build a house for them – so as to avoid any risk of eviction in the future. Local authorities, including the land administration authority, local councils and chiefs working with Habitat Lesotho are instrumental in assisting these households to legally own land wherever we build.
