Prince Harry traveled to the small, impoverished country of Lesotho last week. His organization Sentebale (which translates “forget me not”) provides health care and education to at-risk children in the nation, where one in three kids are orphans. According to Prince Harry's counterpart in Africa, Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, “about a third of Lesotho’s young men are sent away by their parents every year to be herd boys – but often they are not young men at all, but boys as young as 10 years old.” The herd boy tradition traps them a the cycle of poverty and denies them any opportunity of an education.
Sentebale is currently building the Mamohato Children’s Center which will open in 2015.
