CNN report on our work with Herd Boys

Prince Seeiso spoke to CNN about Lesotho’s herd boys and how Sentebale is helping to support one of the most vulnerable groups of young people in Lesotho.

In Lesotho, boys from as young as eight years old travel to the remote highlands to care for livestock as a way of supporting their families. Consequently, they miss out on the opportunity to receive a formal education as well as access to public health services. Since Sentebale was set up in 2006, efforts have been made to give these children an education by working with local communities to establish herd boy night schools where the boys receive a basic education and life skills. Sentebale’s programme aims to provide 800 herd boys with an education, knowledge of HIV prevention and sexual health, first aid training and livelihood training such as brick-making beekeeping and bead work.

We aim to provide with the opportunity to build a better future for themselves.
