Sentebale - Hope in Vulnerability Garden

The Sentebale garden – designed by Matthew Keightley, head designer of Maidenhead landscaping firm Rosebank and winner of the 2014 People’s Choice Award with his ‘Hope on the Horizon’ garden – aims to raise awareness of Sentebale’s work in providing healthcare and education to Lesotho’s most vulnerable children, many of whom are victims of extreme poverty and Lesotho’s HIV/AIDs epidemic.

Sentebale - Hope in Vulnerability Garden

Sponsored by the David Brownlow Charitable Foundation, the garden will see Keightley draw inspiration from Sentebale’s Mamohato Children’s Centre, a new facility providing residential camps for children affected by HIV/AIDS opening in Lesotho next year.

Sentebale - Hope in Vulnerability Garden

HRH the Prince of Wales' Foundation for Building Community has advised Sentebale in the design of the Mamohato Children’s Centre using their expertise in delivering a sustainable development that allows for a marked improvement in quality of life. In this case, the lives of thousands of young people who have been stigmatised by loss of one or both parents, who live with disabilities and those trying to come to terms with living with HIV.
