The money and awareness raised from the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup will go towards sending 1,500 children and adolescents aged between 10 and 19 years old to Sentebale’s monthly clubs and five-day, residential camp at the newly opened ‘Mamohato Children’s Centre - if children with HIV are educated about the virus, they not only learn about their condition but also can educate their peers about the disease, enlightening a generation and leading the way to ending the AIDS epidemic.










Speaking at the post-tournament dinner held in the spectacular stables of Valiente Polo Farm Founding Patron of Sentebale, Prince Harry said “the Mamohato Children’s Centre in Lesotho which we opened last year, would not have been built without the generosity of Sentebale and its partners.
