A group of young Baha'i performers is in the country to do a series of dance and art presentations aimed at empowering the youth in different social issues.

The group, Beyond Words, is visiting schools and communities around Maseru where they perform dances and workshop on different issues such as the HIV/AIDS, Poverty, World Peace and Order, Violence, Equality of Men and Women and many more other social issues.

The group is scheduled to make more than twenty performances in the country before going to Cape Town in South Africa from where they will visit the rest of provinces in that country.

In an interview with the group's members last week they said the most important part of their tour, which will also include South Africa, is "service to humanity".

Mentioned one of the group's members: "We are mostly self-sponsored, we are actually doing service just before we start college".

The group's members have be drawn from different countries such as Albania, Cameroun, Canada, Czech Republic, Ecuador, England, Guyana, South Africa, United States.
