Most FCDO supported projects under the Lesotho bilateral programme ended in 2010. One project – the ALAFA initiative which provides HIV services to 40,000 factory workers in the garment industry – runs until August 2011. To help ensure that ALAFA’s work continues into the long term, we will be providing an additional £1m to the project. At the same time, the UK will continue to support Lesotho through multilateral agencies such as the EU and World Bank (around £7m each year), debt relief (around £1m last year) and FCDO’s regional programme which is run from Pretoria. In addition, civil society organisations working in Lesotho will continue to receive UK support through centrally managed funds.

Sectors and budgets in Lesotho

Please note that although budgets are generally split by year, some departments publish budgets that span multiple years. These are represented in the first year of their allocation. Cross-government allocations such as Prosperity Fund and Conflict, Stability and Security Fund are known to duplicate budgets published by other departments, as well as using multi-year budgets.
