YALI fellows lend a helping hand About Mother’s Day

RELEBOHIE TSOAMOTSE MASERU- Mandela Washington fellows last Saturday joined other African countries in celebrating Mandela Washington Fellowship day aimed at promoting community work. The fellows celebrated with Tholoana ea Lerato orphanage home where they engaged in various community work services that included cleaning, painting, doing the gardens and soft services such as the motivational talk as well as games for the kids. They also donated to the children at the orphanage winter clothes and sanitary towels for the girls. The donation was part of the community service that the fellows are engaged in as individuals but decided to join hands on that particular day for a grand gesture. In celebrating Mandela Washington Fellows day, the fellows came together as the 2017 Lesotho fellows group and lend a helping hand to Tholoana ea Lerato orphanage. Themed community work, the Mandela Washington Fellowship day is commemorated annually on May 5th. It was launched in 2017 with the aim of bringing together the fellowship community to honour the vision of Nelson Mandela through community work. The Mandela Washington Fellowship day according to Lesotho fellows who

spoke to Pubic Eye in an interview said it is not just about volunteering or engaging in community work on that day but rather about the importance of servant leadership or doing things without expecting anything in return. While they gathered at Tholoana ea Lerato to assist the children’s at the home with some of their needs, it was just an activity meant to commemorate the day for all fellows are engaged in different community work activities in their own communities. The coming together of the 2017 Lesotho’s Mandela Washington Fellows also marked the launch of the projects and activities that fellows will be engaged in as a group going forward. In their remarks, one of the fellows, Kanono Thabane said their visit to Tholoana ea Lerato was definitely not the last one because they came to familiarize themselves with the general needs of the orphanage so they know how best to assist it. He pointed out that they feel obliged to help those in need for they are leaders. “Our visit here today is definitely not the last one, we hope to assist the orphanage in any way possible in the near future and we will be familiarizing ourselves with the needs as we help today,” Thabane said. Another Mandela Washington fellow, Tseliso Makara shared the same sentiments and pointed out that community work is something that all people should be engaged in not because

they expect something in return. He also pointed out that they are obliged to help others or be agents of change because they have also benefitted from what have been fought for by generations before them. He said it was important to ensure that they also pave way and make things right for other generations. Their sponsors were Econo Foods and Basutoland Ink. The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders which begun in 2014 is the flagship programme of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) that empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking. They are provided with the opportunity to hone their skills at a US college or university with support for professional development after they return home. For her part, Matebello Sesinyi of Tholoana ea Lerato expressed gratitude for the visit they received from the fellows and pointed out that whatever they have brought will go a long way in assisting in the wellbeing of the children. She said the orphanage currently does not have permanent sponsors but relies on individuals who voluntarily come and make donations. Tholoana ea Lerato is a home to a total of 32 children who all go to school to St James Primary while the eldest is doing Grade 10.

A mother’s love begins before life itself. It is gentle & fierce. It hopes for the best, while guarding against the worst. It pushes you to venture out into the world. It motivates you to pursue your dreams. It inspires you to be the best possible version of yourself. A mother’s love overflows. It is absolute & deeper than the Mariana Trench. For ONE day a year, everyone worldwide agrees, Mom’s are special and they deserve the best. So, while no one gift can sum up our appreciation for Mom, we at Pioneer Mall will surely try to help you find a gift to make her smile. Here are a few ideas for great Mother’s day gifts. Does your mother spend hours preparing hearty home cooked meals for the family? Then she may appreciate a day away from the kitchen; so treat her to a dining experience at Spur, Barcelos, Mojo Steak & Trout Grill, or Good Times Café. Or if you want to keep things warm and cosy, why not get take out from Steers or Debonairs Pizza and add a touch of décor from Let’s Party to make her mother’s day at home memorable? If however you know that your mother loves clothing and accessories, then visit Elite, Euphoria, Fabulous Exclusives, KV Fashions, Glitzzz, Ladies Paradise, KBS Leisure Brands, The Collectables, The Colony, Salon Yvonne, Photo & Gift Galaxy or Sports Bliss and choose from a wide range of handbags, dresses, shoes, jackets, perfumes, watches & jewellery, books, frames & portraits. Perhaps you could have something made especially for Mom from Hoatin Enterprises or Katleho Designs, or visit the Blanket Parlour for a special culture inspired Seana-marena. If your wife is a Mother to be, then you should definitely visit Smalley’s for the cutest baby clothes to express your gratitude for her being the mother of your children. But if relaxation is what your wife or mother is looking for, then perhaps a visit to Exclusive Spa or Image Hair Salon is in order; or even a special trip booked through Leloli Travel. Then again, a laptop, tablet or smartphone from Atlantic high-tech, Extreme Electronics or Econet could be the best gift for the wife or mom with a busy work schedule. Either way, you should be able to find the best gifts For Mom’s Only at Pioneer Mall this May.

‘We should have seen the signs’ Mind Liberation Psychology Consultancy KHAUHELO MAJARA “We should have seen the signs”, a line that has recently become a reflex thrown at the countless fallen soldiers we lose daily to suicide. This has become an apparent reality, in particular, for the youth of today. Yet one wonders, are we really not seeing the signs of mental health problems or are we not aware of what we should be looking for to begin with? Mental health is centred on emotional, psychological and social well-being as it affects how we think, feel and act. Mental health is essential from childhood to late adulthood as it determines how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. Mental health problems have increased in adolescents in the past 20-30 years due to things like disruption of family structure, growing youth unemployment

and increasing educational/work pressures. Some mental health problems include but are not limited to anxiety, depression, school phobia, learning disabilities, eating disorders, conduct disorders and substance abuse. The diagnosis of mental health problems in adolescents by teachers and parents may be dismissed as adolescent turmoil as variations of moods and deviant acts are a normal adolescent process. Furthermore, assessing mental health problems in young people in a non-mental health setting like primary and secondary care can be difficult thus creating a barrier of understanding between adolescents and their caregivers. The involvement of parents plays a huge role in a student’s successful educational

experience. How then, do parents play a role in the countering of their children’s mental health problems if institutions such as culture and religion create a barrier? A study in sub-Saharan Africa reveals that there is a widening mental health gap for youth as there are few economic and human resources dedicated to their mental health. Individuals from low-economic backgrounds, as seen in many families in Lesotho, are argued to be twice as likely to be exposed to mental health problems. The study also indicates stigmatization is often the cause of untreated mental health problems. Individuals are often faced with social

MEDIA ANNOUNCEMENT: ASSET VERIFCATION FOR THE POLIHALI 132KV POWERLINE PROJECT The Lesotho Highlands Development Authority (LHDA) wishes to announce the commencement of the verification of assets affected by the Polihali 132kV Bulk Power Supply project. This project entails the construction of 132kV powerline from Matsoku Sub-station at Ha Ts’ehla (next to Ha Seshote) in the Leribe District to the Polihali dam site in the Mokhotlong District. The 31m-wide powerline servitude has been surveyed and marked using white-washed stone where assets are affected. The LHDA has just completed its surveys and registration of affected assets and owners, with the assistance of the Chiefs, Councilors and project related community structures. This survey took place from June 2017 to February 2018. The LHDA now invites owners of the affected assets to avail themselves for the purpose of verification of the recorded assets. Each owner has to verify his/her assets in person. In the event that the owners are married in community of property, proof of marriage (marriage certificate, family letter or a signed Affidavit confirming the marriage between spouses) must be presented. A copy of Affidavit Form can be obtained from the LHDA Polihali Operations Offices at Tlokoeng or the relevant Chief’s place or Makhetha Development Consultants’ office (behind the Seshote Clinic). If one spouse is absent, he or she must provide written consent for the other spouse to represent both. A copy of the ‘Power of Attorney’ that can be filled to give ‘consent’ can be obtained from the places mentioned above.

With the coming of a new year, most of us have once again resolved to make ourselves into better people – the people we were meant to be. Last year’s resolutions may be only a fading memory, but this year, we’re sure, will be different. Sadly, that’s probably not true. Eighty percent of New Year’s resolutions are broken by the second week of February, according to an article in U.S. News & World Report by clinical psychologist Joseph J. Luciani. If you’re an entrepreneur, maybe you’ve vowed that this year you’ll be more productive. Are you doomed to be disappointed like everyone else? Not necessarily. According to some psychologists, if you experiment with small potential solutions to your problem, big changes are possible. You may need, in other words, some handy hacks. The wise words my aunt shared with me more than a decade ago still resonate today and guide how I structure my daily routine and schedule: Time is your most valuable currency. It’s the one finite resource we work with daily where we can’t simply create more should we come up short in a given day. This can be especially true for entrepreneurs, who are consistently challenged to do more with fewer resources. So, to get more out of your day and ensure you’re maximising your most valuable currency, here are five small changes to experiment with. Stop multitasking Research at Stanford University showed that people who are media multitaskers are less productive. Those who can juggle many tasks at once certainly appear to be productive. But, this study showed that that is an illusion. It was assumed that these people had some sort of ability – perhaps a better memory – that enabled them to accomplish what others could not. But, it turns out that they may just be more easily distracted. Concentrate! (But only for 52 minutes) concentrateIt’s counterintuitive, but research has shown that people who take short breaks during the day are more productive. One study demonstrated that the most productive 10 percent of workers, worked on average for just 52 minutes before taking a break. And the perfect

break was 17 minutes long. The idea that breaks can make you more productive is not new. Back in the 1920s, Henry Ford realised that his company could get just as much work done by limiting the work week to five days and the work day to eight hours. Get an app for that If there is a task that hinders your productivity, see if there is some technology that will help you do it better. For example, if you’ve lost business because you’ve repeatedly missed customer calls, think about forwarding your office phone to your mobile device via voice-over-IP, or VOIP. It’s technology that has been around for a while and can keep you in touch with your customers no matter where you are. Delegate If you’re a person who believes if you want it done right, do it yourself, you could be wrong. Smart entrepreneurs know what they’re good at, and they know that delegating the rest may be more efficient than doing it themselves. It may take some time to determine which responsibilities you should hand off to others, but that time could pay off by freeing you up for more productive tasks. Eliminate some meetings Meetings can be an enormous waste of time, so attend only those that are absolutely necessary. Is that luncheon with the local chamber of commerce likely to generate some leads or not? If not, find a better way to drum up business. If you can’t eliminate meetings, try to make them more productive. One way is to keep them short, 30 minutes or less. Another is to create an agenda and send it out a day ahead of time. If none of these experiments work, maybe the problem isn’t you. According to a Harvard Business Review article, some people just aren’t comfortable with techniques designed to make them more productive. They feel these techniques impose a regimentation on them that interrupts the flow of work, damages the quality of their work experience and even hampers their productivity. So, if you’ve tried techniques to make you more productive and they haven’t worked, don’t sweat it. Just focus on other resolutions instead. Didn’t you sign up for a new gym membership?
