Jordan Wine Estate, one of South Africa’s leading wine estates, situated in Stellenbosch, South Africa, is proud to announce their involvement at Prince Harry’s Sentebale Gala Dinner which will take place on the 27th February at Summer Place in Johannesburg, to mark the launch of Sentebale’s major capital fundraising programme to build the first permanent Mamohato Centre for children and young people.
Sentebale was set up in 2006 by Prince Harry from the British royal family and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. Sentebale is a Sesotho (language of Lesotho) word meaning ‘forget me not’ in English. The charity was founded in memory of the two princes’ late mothers, and helps the most vulnerable children in Lesotho who are affected by HIV/AIDS.
The Mamohato Centre – named after Prince Seeiso’s mother, Queen ‘Mamohato Bereng Seeiso – will be built on the sacred land of Thaba-Bosiu in Lesotho, known to many as the birthplace of the nation. The facility will allow Sentebale to reach four times the number of children than before and will provide leading psychosocial care and peer mentoring for children and young people infected with or affected by HIV – removing the stigma attached to the disease, inspiring confidence, self-reliance and most importantly making a marked improvement in these young people’s quality of life. www.sentebale.org
