Children at Molelle Secondary School in Lesotho used to trek up to 2 kilometers – each way – to class daily. Not anymore. An African Development Bank-funded Education Quality Enhancement Project helped construct boarding facilities for these high school students. Secondary education in the mountain kingdom is not free, nor compulsory. The provision of housing improved student safety, student performance and, school administrators say, student wellbeing. Both students and teachers – who also received training under the project – say they appreciate the new housing, and how it has helped improve the quality of their lives.
