The Patiseng Primary School in Lesotho is situated in the north of the country in the Butha-Buthe district in the Kota Valley. About 30 families live in the village which hugs the foot of the Sekameng Mountain range. A blind valley surrounds the village on three sides. 120 children attending the school were crammed into two classrooms which were in a state of disrepair and severely limited the quality of education provided. The local community relies on subsistence farming. They cultivate the mountainsides which they have sculpted into a series of terraces to make as much land as possible useful for farming. Crops like millet, cabbage, carrots and a little maize are grown and are watered by seasonal rains. These crops provide the staple diet for this vulnerable mountain community.
