Lefa, a Sotho word meaning “Legacy” or “Inheritance”
We believe unless something is done urgently our children will continue to inherit nothing but increasing poverty and unemployment.
Lefa’s core mission since 2012 is to form cooperative partnerships to confront some of the socio-economic challenges impacting communities, most especially youth through the use of mobile technologies and the internet.
Most of our township schools lack the ICT infrastructure, human resource capacity, skills and tools to provide education that can prepare our learners for the current 4th industrial revolution and the digital economy. However, we know that such educational programs and related content are freely available online. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of data and smart devices in our country most of our communities cannot afford access to such content that is freely available on the internet. All of this tragically means that most of our children will become even less employable or skilled enough to start their own businesses in this new digital economy.
