Hello! I am Becky Dale, the newest TTL Fellow here in the stunning mountains of Lesotho.
I have just arrived from the much flatter (and much warmer!) West African country of Ghana where I spent six months working to improve the quality of primary education in the Volta Region. That position was a departure from my previous work and studies that have focused on central African history, conflict, and development. Needless to say, I am once again about to experience a very different story during my time in Lesotho.
The next year will be a great learning opportunity, and I am both eager to get started and humbled by my ignorance. Yet life in Lesotho will not wait for me to catch up; the work at TTL must continue each day.
I am excited to be joining the staff of TTL, spending time with the babies and their families, and meeting the visitors who make the trek to Mokhotlong. For those unable to visit our Kingdom in the Sky, I look forward to sharing plenty of stories and memorable experiences along the way!
The TTLF Fellow is a representative of the North American organisation Touching Tiny Lives Foundation. Based for one year in Mokhotlong, Lesotho, the TTLF Fellow serves in an administrative support capacity for the Basotho charity Touching Tiny Lives (TTL).
