Bahá’í youth performance at the Lesotho Bahá’í National Centre.

Founded in 1953, the Lesotho Bahá’í community now includes more than 80 localities throughout the country. The Bahá’ís are strong promoters of universal education, the equality of men and women, the abolition of all forms of prejudice, and the oneness of humanity.

The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established.

– Bahá’u’lláh
