Introducing "Ithute Bicentennial Album" by Nomapads Foundation". We are celebrating Lesotho's 200 years through our 4th educational album edition which will promote the preservation of Basotho culture through music. Over 6 months, Ithate Youth Club, part of Nomapads Foundation, will empower Basotho youth girls with sound tech and production skills. Support us in sustaining heritage through indigenous music, soundtracks, and podcasts! #PreserveBasothoHeritage #IthuteBicentennialAlbum

Lesotho faces a critical challenge with the erosion of Basotho culture, particularly impacting the mental health of its youth. Compounded by high mortality rates, especially among youth, there's an urgent need to address cultural disconnection and mental health issues.


The "Ithute Bicentennial Album" not only preserves Basotho heritage but also serves as a creative tool for addressing mental health concerns. Through music and artistic expression, the project provides a therapeutic outlet, offering a means for youth, to navigate the challenges they face. By integrating art into the initiative, Nomapads Foundation aims to use cultural preservation as a catalyst for mental health awareness and healing.

Long-Term Impact

The project's broader impact lies in its potential to contribute to the mental well-being of the community. Beyond preserving culture, the fusion of art and heritage can become a powerful tool for addressing mental health issues, potentially influencing the life expectancy rates in Lesotho. By nurturing a sense of identity and providing a creative outlet, the initiative endeavors to contribute to healthier and more resilient communities, aiming to improve the quality of life for Basotho.
