Distribution of flyers in High Schools (Outreach Programme)


The office of the Ombudsman has embarked on an intensive outreach programme whereby the officers have started distributing two types of flyers to high school students in the ten district of the country.

This programme started in Mokhotlong district in February 2014 and the following schools were visited:
•  Maluba-lube Secondary School
•  ‘Malefiloane High School
•  Mapholaneng High School
•  St. Martins High school
•  Senkoase High School

During these visits students and teachers are taught about the functions and roles of the office and thereafter given chance to comment or ask questions. Flyers are then distributed to further educate them about the office. One type of flyer is about the mandate areas of the Office of the Ombudsman while the other flyer is about the procedure to follow when one lodges a complaint
