Lesotho is a small kingdom in the mountains, landlocked in the heart of South Africa. It has been facing an unprecedented drought, which caused a serious food crisis.
A quarter of the population is affected, and it is as disastrous physically as it is psychologically. Hunger is especially dramatic for the most vulnerable, such as children and people living with HIV. It can also lead to sexual exploitation. Yet hunger is not a fatality, as James Machobane has brilliantly proved. In the 1960s, this visionary had invented a farming method that was supposed to give everyone enough food to eat all year round. His plan was adapted to the difficult climatic conditions of his country. How much of it remains nowadays? Find out thanks to this conversation with people from Lesotho.
