They will also have the chance to play football in front go hundreds of supporters, learn about the work of Kick4Life, visit range of cultural sites and see some of Lesotho's beautiful scenery with an adventure trip to the stunning mountain region.
Fawcett said: "As a company we're committed to wider community development and we're thrilled to be linking up with Kick4Life to help transform the lives of some of the most disadvantaged children in the world. As sports fans, we're very excited by the opportunity to use football to make a difference."
Also attending the tour will be representatives of Giggs & Co, a residential estate agency based in Fawcett's home town of St Neots. Fawcett added: "We're looking forward to linking up with Matt Giggs and his team at Giggs & Co on the tour and exploring how we can put our collective skills and experience to good use."
Steve Fleming, Kick4Life Co-founder, said: "We're delighted to have Fawcett Mead involved in the tour. We've been running trips to Lesotho since 2007 and they provide a unique opportunity to experience the country, learn new skills, play football and directly support the work we do."
