Bana means children in the Sesotho language. Founded by Ladell and Bettie Patterson, The Bana Project is a program of Logos Global Ministries, based in the U.S.
The Bana Project of Lesotho began in 2003 as an International Christian Humanitarian effort to assist the tens of thousands of children who have been orphaned or abandoned by the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Lesotho, Africa.
The core focus of The Bana Project of Lesotho has been the weekly food outreach that began by feeding 25 to 30 orphans a week and now serves over 1,800 children located in 28 different villages outside of the capital city of Maseru.
In addition to distributing regular hot meals in the village areas most affected, The Bana Project also provides blankets, shoes, school uniforms and supplies. TBP is in the process of establishing an agricultural program to teach the villagers gardening, farming, and animal husbandry. Threatened daily by sickness and starvation, the villagers of Lesotho are overjoyed that The Bana Project offers hope that their children will enjoy a better and brighter future.
