CHAL Advocacy


The year 2017 opened up with prospects of a brighter future following the commitment that we made as we ended 2016. 54 delegates assembled at Road Directorate Training Centre to attend the 2017 AGM which was hosted by the Seventh Day Adventist Church under the theme Depression; Let’s talk. They are representatives of CHAL member churches and they include clinical and management professionals as well as the clergy to jointly map a way forward for CHAL in 2018. The WHO Country Representative and the Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Health graced this event with their presence and their contributions into the theme.


The months of October and November experience excitement and hope for the future as learners in the four CHAL Nurses Training Institutions reach their exit point in different programs namely Certificate in Nurse Assistant and Diplomas in General Nursing and Midwifery. The two months are marked with graduation celebrations. In 2018, there is a total of ….. graduates from the four institutions, thus, Paray School of Nursing, Scott College of Nursing, Roma college of Nursing and Maluti Adventist College.

AMREF supports CHAL and Lesotho to reduce maternal mortality through production of competent nurses

With the support of AMREF, CHAL Nurses Training Institutions enjoy a technological boost to easily and effectively manage their affairs through installation and use of the Student/ School Management Information System, named Fedena. This this system provides user friendly dashboards with login access for teachers, non-teaching staff, students, parents and management of the institution. This is an effort to enhance the E-learning program and effective management of teaching and learning as well as administrative processes of these institutions. E-Learning program is currently piloted in CHAL and Government of Lesotho institutions namely Maluti Adventist College (MAC) and National Health Training College (NHTC) respectively. Though this project is managed by CHAL, the support extends to GOL with an ultimate goal of reducing maternal and neo-natal mortality rate in the country


Fenena is an E-learning software which has been supported by AMREF in two nursing institutions in Lesotho; which were: Maluti School of Nursing and National Health Training College (NHTC). This ERP system provides user friendly dashboards with login access for teachers, non-teaching staff, students, parents and management of the institution. It offers various modules which facilitate all the processes of the institution, from admission of new student to generating transfer certificates when students complete their studies. Fedena school ERP has modules to manage timetable, attendance, examinations, gradebooks, campus news, hostel, library, student transport, school calendar and school events.
