Sentebale publishes latest Annual Report and Accounts
We have now published our Annual Report and Accounts 2018-2019, showcasing our work in Southern Africa with young people affected by HIV.
Please do take time to read the report, which highlights our achievements over the year, and discover the stories of some of the young people supported by Sentebale.
In Lesotho, Sentebale ran 101 monthly clubs, and 1,152 children attended weeklong camps. We didn’t stop there. 36,348 out-of-school youth were reached by Comprehensive Sex Education curriculum, and adolescent girls and young women’s livelihoods were improved through enrolment in 304 micro-savings programmes, enabling 152 small businesses to be established.
In Botswana, 1,258 adolescents were reached through 47 monthly clubs and 2,000 students in five schools were reached through a peer education outreach activity led by youth advocates. Our young advocates also received training in radio broadcasting skills through continued partnership with the leading private radio station in Botswana, Duma FM.
Looking back at the year’s achievements, Co-Founding Patrons Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso said:
“In the 13 years since Sentebale was founded the organisation has gone from strength to strength. We are very proud of all that has been achieved.”
The Princes are personally committed to playing an active role in the life of Sentebale and to supporting its work long into the future. They said:
“Sentebale means ‘Forget me not’ in Sesotho – and your continued support ensures that the true vision of the charity to remember vulnerable young people is brought to life. We are so grateful.”
CEO Richard Miller said:
“It is important, given the changes in the world and the region we work, to look to the future and consider how best Sentebale should evolve.
“We need to review lessons from our work over the years and listen to young people’s views on what we do best and what type of support would be most valuable in the future. This process will lead to the development of a new strategy, ensuring we remain relevant, fit for purpose and best placed to achieve the greatest impact.”
