Lesotho Environmental Justice and Advocacy Centre (LEJAC)
Lesotho Environmental Justice and Advocacy Centre (LEJAC) was founded in 2006 with a mission to improve environmental outcomes and sustainability through a chiefly human rights, human development, and justice framing. The organization’s goal is to monitor the social and environmental impacts of major national developmental projects in Lesotho. It also works for the general protection of environment, to lobby and advocate for natural resources, and to benefit the local communities which house them. LEJAC is currently running projects on Pro-Poor Property Development which seeks to protect and enforce Land Rights of impoverished people who posses land but lack requisite resources to develop it. A Mejametalana Stream and Valley Environmental Rehabilitation Project has currently been implemented by the Centre to restore Natural Ecosystems of the area.
