Thula Tula's mill partners with Sentebale, founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso to give a percentage of each blanket to help support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana. Our program of education and care provide the tools and knowledge this vulnerable generation need to live long, happy, healthy lives in future. Some of the heartbreaking issues kids face below
Sentebale was founded by The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso in 2006 following Prince Harry’s gap year to Lesotho in 2004.
Setebales mission is to help the most vulnerable children in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives. Sentebale works with local grassroots organizations to help these children – the victims of extreme poverty and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Together, we’re making a big difference to these children’s lives. We can do even more with your help.
We provide care and education for vulnerable children, particularly those affected by HIV. Sentebale supports community-led organizations and families caring for orphans and those living with disabilities. Partners are helped through grants, management support and the provision of training and specialists.
We support some of Lesotho’s most vulnerable children with secondary school bursaries. These include children who have lost one or both parents, and those living with disabilities.
The Let Youth Lead advocacy programme provides young people with a platform to voice the challenges of youth living with HIV and those affected by the epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa. The programme aims to engage policymakers to drive positive change in HIV interventions that better support this generation.
It is our vision is that all youth know and managed their HIV status by 2020.
Sentebale provides adolescent-friendly HIV Testing & Counselling Services (HTS) and HIV prevention services in Lesotho, with young people (18 to 24 year old's) at the heart of delivering this work. These young people are called our peer educators.
