Ba re e ne re is a registered educational organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of Basotho people by promoting initiatives that support improved literacy and creative platforms for expression. Through our work, Basotho, and youth in particular, access training and outlets to practice literacy and share the unique stories Lesotho has to offer with local and international audiences.
Our flagship project is the Ba re e ne re Literature Festival, first held 2011 by our late founder Liepollo Rantekoa. The festival is an annual international literary arts event, which brings writers, readers and leaders together to share ideas and creative works.
The three goals of the Ba re e ne re Literature Festival are focused for high impact. Through our programming, we aim to:
· Cultivate the next generation of writers and storytellers in Lesotho through literary training and platforms for expression.
· Connect Lesotho’s literary arts community with creatives in other African countries and beyond for creative exchange and improved publishing opportunities.
· Establish an ongoing platform for literary arts activities in Lesotho.
· Instigate the use of literature as a tool to address pressing socio-economic and political issues within Lesotho.
