In this report, we present results from a mixed methods study on civic service activities in a small and emerging democratic southern African country, Lesotho. Using these data, we address a gap in the literature by establishing the extent to which local sources and U.S. partners, particularly NGOs, contribute to civic engagement in Lesotho. We present recommendations for future research, practice, and policy directions.
