Africa’s Gift- Malealea’s UK strategic charity partner!
The UK based charity Africa’s Gift was born from working with Malealea Lodge and subsequently the Malealea Development Trust and its trustees work in the valley dates back to the year 2000.
The charity started life known as Khokanyana - Phiri the Sesotho phrase which means “A group of people coming together for a common purpose!”
While this phrase beautifully describes the ethos of our UK work – which is working in partnership with the local community rather than coming to do to it – the phrase proved too challenging for UK citizens to pronounce ( and spell on cheques!) so we sought an alternative name. If you have just returned from the beautiful Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho and have had even a brief encounter of its joyous people then you will know why we have named our charity Africa’s Gift – for that is what you will have received!

Our website offers you two choices. We have based our themed choices on the words of the late, great Nelson Mandela; namely “It is your hands to make a difference!”
