Inspired by the spirituality of Mother Marie-Rose Durocher, her educational vision and her concern for justice, our congregation has been able to adapt to the needs and issues of the various local communities where the sisters are present.
In Lesotho, our action takes many forms. We work in education and pastoral animation. We are also very involved in health care through dispensaries and clinics to help, among others, AIDS patients. Some of us work in hospitals and maternity clinics.
Our knowledge of the various environments, both urban and rural, leads us to initiate ourselves or with others, mobilizing projects. Some of these projects help disabled and / or orphaned children. Others help build family services to deal with extreme poverty and famine.
Still others aim to mentor adolescents left on their own to enable them to flourish and become responsible adults. Always determined to meet the needs, we extended our works to the neighboring country, South Africa and more particularly to Qwa-Qwa where we have a school institution.
At the same time, we actively participate in the calls for justice launched throughout the congregation to promote the fundamental rights of the person, the dignity of the person and the health of our planet. We are very happy to have collaborated in the process of analysis and reflection and to have adopted, with our sisters from the other SNJM provinces, three Corporate Stands on very current themes for Lesotho:
- Fight against human trafficking
- Universal access to water
- Migrants and refugees
Invited to participate in the Lesotho Evangelization Project, our congregation of Catholic Teaching Women Religious quickly taken stock of the educational needs of the people of Lesotho.
From the beginning, we paid special attention to young children, always bearing in mind the approach and spirit of Mother Marie-Rose. We have designed and adapted our educational programs to take into account the evolution of society, places, conditions and individuals.
We have invested in schooling from preschool level to higher education. Home economics, nursing and computer classes have also been added over the years.
The development of the educational component in Lesotho always respects the philosophy of our foundress, Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher, to promote the full development of the person. Discover our educational institutions…
