Lesotho, known as ‘the Kingdom in the Sky’ is landlocked and contained within the middle of South Africa.  Lesotho is incredibly beautiful, has mountainous country and is plentiful in natural resources and sites.

The country offers majestic mountain scenery, a proud and traditional community, endless hiking trails, and the unique opportunity to explore remote areas on Basotho ponies.

Lesotho is the only independent state in the world that lies entirely above 1,000 meters or 3,300 feet in elevation; 80% of the country lies over 1,400 meters.

Due to its altitude, Lesotho remains cooler throughout the year than other regions at the same latitude. Most of the rain falls as summer thunderstorms. Maseru and surrounding lowlands often reach 30 °C (86 °F) in summer. Winters can be cold with the lowlands getting down to −7 °C (19 °F) and the highlands to −18 °C (0 °F) at times. Snow is common in the highlands between May and September; the higher peaks can experience snowfalls year-round.

Lord Neil B. Gibson and We at Twin Peaks Limited are excited to introduce you to “Project Lesotho” in rebuilding a community, there are 3 necessary components : Natural Resources, Manmade Resources and Teamwork.

The sign of a powerful community is sustainability and this is why “Project Lesotho” has won the hearts of many. For a business minded individual, rebuilding an entire country and investing in such progress lends obvious signs as to why such an endeavor is lucrative.

Furthermore, one truly recognizes what Switzerland is to Europe, Lesotho is to Africa which has obvious benefits. For a government entity, such a project is not only the responsibility of a nations leadership but it too is an opportunity to better all aspects of a region impacting an individual and transcending to groups, businesses and entire communities.

Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson states “Project Lesotho” is a team effort fueled by private entities who are committed to participating in a movement for the betterment of people. In doing so the goal of “Project Lesotho” is threefold:

– To enhance transportation –

– To enhance the natural resources and number –

-To elevate the standard of living –

Twin Peaks Investment Group concentrates it’s investment efforts to work in conjunction with the economic growth strategy developed by the government of Lesotho. Twin Peaks has established a direct relationship with the Royal family of the country in an effort to improve overall quality of life for all it’s citizens.

Lesotho had surpassed most LDCs in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI), predominantly export-oriented, and in significant amounts to the apparel industry, which had generated employment and foreign exchange. However, this FDI was dependent on temporary trade privileges, and Lesotho had to face the challenge of full global competition once those trade privileges were to expire. The IPR recommended a strategy to retain existing investors and diversify investment. Key actions included:

  • Developing a competitive base for manufacturing FDI.
  • Exploiting more fully complementarities with Lesotho´s neighbour, South Africa .
  • Improving access to other large markets.
  • Building up the country´s own capabilities in manufacturing, services and agriculture.
  • Fine-tuning the investment framework.
  • Raising workers´ productivity.
  • Strengthening local entrepreneurship.
  • Addressing infrastructure constraints.
  • Strengthening FDI promotion and facilitation

When you encounter someone with the word “Lord” in front of their name, you probably don’t immediately assume them to be a great humanitarian. Indeed, your first thought might be that the person is some stuffy aristocrat, or a pompous royal figure. What you should know about Lord Neil Gibson from the very get-go is that neither of these things apply to him; actually, he earned his title simply through a land purchase, not because he was born into royalty or because he serves in Parliament. He is not some stuffy or stuck-up social climber, either; no, his priorities lie in far more important areas than that.

In fact, Lord Neil Gibson is someone who is known, first and foremost, for his work helping those in need. Consider, if you will, just a few points from his resume:

  • For a couple of years, Lord Neil Gibson served as the Ambassador at Large in West Africa, where he enacted a rather ingenious plan to bring relief items to those who needed them most. This came about both through his own savvy sense of diplomacy and his problem-solving skills—as well as a keen partnership with Firestone Tire Company!
  • Lord Neil Gibson has also done much to help in the ongoing efforts to rebuild Iraq; specifically, he is involved in endeavors to rebuild the economy and to build new hospitals.
  • Lord Neil Gibson has done much work to bring funds and relief efforts to the still-struggling New Orleans.
  • He is currently working alongside government officials in Belize to bring an important new trade road there.
  • He has helped the struggling nation of Lesotho to rebuild its economy.

In those bullet points we see not the entirety of Lord Neil Gibson’s career, but certainly the important character traits that make him who he is—namely, an ability to form key alliances, and a resolution to help those in need, no matter what part of the globe they’re found on!

In our highly politicized age, it’s difficult to talk about Iraq in bipartisan terms. Everyone has strong feelings about the state of affairs in that country, and of the United States’ involvement in it, especially. What many of us are inclined to say is that, regardless of the strategy and political maneuvering that went into the military endeavors in that country, the Iraq we see before us today is one that desperately needs to be rebuilt—rebuilt into a peaceful and prosperous nation. But of course, the ravages of war and the nature of politics being what they are, this is easier said than done. It takes real leadership, and clear ideas, to enact positive change in that nation.

And these, of course, are a couple of characteristics that Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson has in great abundance. Indeed, we have already spoken at some length about the different ways in which this man has brought about positive change in nations across the world, and how he has done so through a combination of diplomacy, practicality, and alliances with both heads of state and corporate giants. That’s certainly the way we could view his collaborations with the royal family in Lesotho, or even his partnership with Firestone in bringing relief to West Africa. And that’s also the way we can view Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson’s involvement in Iraq.

A big part of Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson’s humanitarian work is centered on rebuilding economic infrastructures in crumbling nations, and Iraq certainly fits that bill. But how can one man rebuild the entire financial system of a nation in chaos? The answer, of course, is through an ingenious partnership with a major financial investment firm, specifically Wontert Capital AG, whose involvement in Iraq is critical to the success of Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson’s endeavors.

And these allies are not just rebuilding the financial system. No, they are also building new hospitals in areas of the nation that desperately need them, offering further evidence of just the kind of positive change a man like Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson can bring to a needy country!

Lord Neil B Gibson is a man with a reputation—specifically, a reputation as someone keen on extending goodwill and bringing humanitarian aid to troubled nations that really need it. The extent of his ambassadorial work and humanitarian relief efforts is so vast, however, that it can be a bit daunting just trying to keep up with it all. To simplify matters, and make things a little easier, it might make sense to view these matters chronologically, addressing the different phases of Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson’s humanitarian career on a year-by-year basis. The following timeline is by no means complete, but does highlight some of the most important era of his earliest days as an ambassador and humanitarian.

1998-2000. This is the era we have already mentioned on a previous page, the stage at which Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson was appointed Ambassador at Large to West Africa. In this role he worked tirelessly to bring much-needed supplies to impoverished communities. He raised support and collected supplies, clothing items, and books at California schools, and shipped them back to Africa in empty shipping containers, all thanks to a partnership with the Firestone Tire Company!

2000-2004. During these years, Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson was appointed Honorary Consul General to Liberia, and was charged by the British Foreign Commonwealth Office with distribute aid to those in need throughout West Africa.

2004-2007. During this time, Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson traveled the world and formed meaningful partnerships and alliances. His travels took him to such areas as South America, Eastern Europe, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, and various parts of Asia. He formed lasting connections with different businesses in the financial sector, and sowed the seeds for partnerships that would pay off huge dividends in the long run.

In 2008, he obtained his lordship—which does not indicate that he is a member of the British parliament, mind you, but at least offers some indication that he is an upstanding citizen!

And ever since then, Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson has been forming connections and enacting positive social change in nations all over the world. We will talk more in depth about many of these opportunities, but for now, suffice to say that he is not just a citizen in good standing in his native Britain; he is a true citizen of the world, and he takes that responsibility very seriously indeed.

A world traveler, ambassador of humanitarianism and goodwill, and a true global citizen, Lord Neil B Gibson has lent his considerable problem-solving, relief-bringing, and alliance-forming prowess to a number of nations all over the world. We have talked about some of them already. We talked about the amazing work he did when he was appointed as Ambassador at Large to West Africa, partnering with Firestone Tire Company to provide relief and much-needed supplies to nations in ruin. We talked about how he is helping to rebuild the economic infrastructure in Lesotho, and how he is doing much the same thing, as well as building hospitals, in Iraq. And of course, we have also discussed his travels to places as varied as Western Europe and Hong Kong.

But what might surprise you, at first blush, is that Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson has also lent his services to folks in America. This might be surprising only because we typically do not think of America as having the same kinds of basic needs as somewhere like, say, war-ravaged Iraq, or tiny Lesotho. And yet, when you pause for a moment to consider recent events and current crises that America faces, it quickly becomes apparent that the expertise and humanitarian efforts of a man like Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson might actually come in handy.

Is there a particular area that needs assistance? Why, the City of New Orleans serves as a prime example. You probably know that there have been many charities and organizations to take on the challenge of rebuilding this city in the wake of Katrina, and you probably also know that these efforts are ongoing, and that there is still much work to be done.

What you might not know is that Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson has been integral in some of these ongoing efforts. Indeed, in recent years Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson has met with high-ranking Louisiana officials and opened many doors for bringing public and private funding into the city—work that is essential for ensuring that this city continues to find its footing. All of this serves, quite simply, as further proof of the kind of impact Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson has in needy regions throughout the world—including those in our own back yard!
