Who We Are

Qholaqhoe Mountain Connections (QMC) was established in 2009 in response to the dire needs of the population of the rural Qholaqhoe Mountain region of Lesotho, a third world, developing country geographically surrounded by South Africa.
Known for its stunningly dramatic mountain topography, Lesotho also has a mostly barren landscape and is plagued with erosion and the resulting poor soil quality. 75% of the population of 2.2 million people live in remote, rural areas and eke out a living as subsistence farmers.
In order to positively impact the lives of children living in the eight villages of Qholaqhoe, QMC provides tuition assistance both at the high school and college level.

    We currently support 60 students attending Qholaqhoe High School through our sponsorship program.
    10 Qholaqhoe High School graduates are currently enrolled in our College Scholarship Program which is supported by our generous donors.

Opportunities for high school and university level education are life changing to these students.
