In a small mountain village in Lesotho in southern Africa, Rosa Maria Rametsi and her husband are raising their six grandchildren. Their two youngest grandchildren attend a CRS-supported Early Childhood Development Center where they learn to count, to recite the alphabet and to work together in groups. Rosa Maria is hopeful this education will give the children a good start towards a bright future.
