The Lesotho Council of Non-Governmental Organizations [LCN] is a Council of organized non-governmental organizations [NGO’s]. It was established in May 1990 with the objective of providing supportive services to the NGO Community. The Council does this through networking leadership training and development, information dissemination, capacity building, coordination, advocacy and representation when dealing with the government, and the international Community.

Mission Statement:  The primary mission of the Council is to stimulate, promote and build capacity within Lesotho NGO`s so that, they are stable, democratic, transparent, skilled, empowered, sustainable and responsive to their beneficiaries needs and those of the voiceless and marginalised.

Vision:  LCN`s vision is for Lesotho to develop with vibrant civil society organisations who network and work towards sustainable management of natural resources, socio economic development and social justice for all.
