Malealea Valley, Lesotho

Me Theresa’s adopted daughter, Edumelen, is a double orphan whose parents died untreated of HIV/AIDS two years ago. Soon afterward she came to live with Me Theresa. Now Edumelen lives in comfort and security with Me Theresa and works hard at Saturday chores. Last year Edumelen failed her 7th grade exit exam in English because of the aftermath of caring for her parents. Me Theresa hopes for a better outcome on this year’s test and will pay her fees for secondary school if she passes.
