Sepheo identifies, reintegrates and educates children living and begging on the streets in Maseru, Lesotho’s capital. Out of poverty, we develop children who live with excellence.
Children are on the streets for many reasons. They have lost parents to HIV and fallen victim to abandonment, extreme poverty and family breakdown.
Some have raised themselves on the street, sleeping under makeshift shelters, suffering disease and malnutrition and turning to violence and crime to make a living.
Others are the breadwinners for their families, going to town from surrounding villages to beg or do small jobs to take money home at the end of the night.
We reject the identity of ‘street kids.’ These children were created for a purpose.
