Now available: Sentebale’s Report & Accounts 2013/14
Sentebale’s financial year ended on 31st August 2014. This year’s report and accounts show success and growth for the charity.
The Financial Statement shows that Sentebale increased incoming resources from £2.6million in 2012/13 to £3.4million in 2013/14, an increase of 30%.
During the financial year, progress was made in scaling up our work in Lesotho providing psychosocial support to children living with HIV, with the Network and Camps programme seeing a 48% increase in the number of 10-19year olds attending camp. Funding targets were met to build the Mamohato Children’s Centre, a £2.2million project, which is due to open later this year in Lesotho.
The Mamohato Children’s Centre will be the first purpose-built facility allowing Sentebale to house weeklong camps for children living with HIV in a permanent facility rather than hiring temporary space. It will mean four times the number of HIV-positive children can attend camp each year as well as serving as a centre of excellence for training new staff and volunteers in providing care and support to these vulnerable children.
The total resources expended in the year were £2,090million. The amount spent on charitable activities was £1.538million. The actual charitable expenditure in local currency increased by 21%. This increase has been offset by a GBP gain in exchange rates of 9% in the period.
Cathy Ferrier, CEO said; “I am pleased to present this set of accounts. Thanks to the continued hard work of the Sentebale team and the support of our partners and supporters, the work in Lesotho makes a huge difference to the lives of thousands of children.”
Philip Green, Chairman, Board of Trustees said; “Sentebale has had another strong year of growth, in which we have taken on the challenge of building the Mamohato Children’s Centre as well as growing our programmes across the country of Lesotho. We have ambitious plans for the future and look forward to working with friends of Sentebale to support many more children to fulfil their potential in life.”
