Keep Lesotho Green #SoWhat
Anglican Youth of Southern Africa hosted a three days( 28 November to 1 December) Cluster youth consultation in Maseru Lesotho. About 50 Youth came from the Dioceses of Lesotho, Free State, and Matlosane attended
On Friday the 29th the Green Anglicans ran a workshop titled “So What”. During this time members of the consultation had to go into groups and : identify environmental hazard zones and map them, using the problem tree show us the causes and impact (#so what?). This was to make the house aware that we always need to plan and see where the problem is coming from and how it impacts on our communities, a skill I learned at the Tearfund Movement building boot camp.
On Saturday the 30th November 2019 with the help of the Maseru local Municipality we went on to cleaning the central business area in town and during this time small informal business holders joined us as this is their area , one of them said ” We always thought church was just praying for the sick but today you brought hope to us as entrepreneurs a message that cleanliness is next to Godliness we hoping to attract more customers now that our place is clean and blessed” . The business holders promised that in partnership with the local Municipality they shall keep the area clean.
