’ARCHIE’S FATHER’😂👨‍👦| Today the Duke spoke about why Botswana means so much to him because it’s where he came in November 1997 to help him in the months after the death of his mother, Princess Diana. He said: "15 years I've been coming here, it's a sense of escapism, a real sense of purpose. I have some of my closest friends here and I came here in 1997 or 1998 straight after my mum died, so it was a nice place to get away from it all. But now I feel deeply connected to this place and to Africa." In addition, we can’t forget this is where his relationship with our Duchess blossomed 🇧🇼👫 . . . At the @Sentebale camp on Kasane, Botswana for children living with HIV. The sign reads “WELCOME ARCHIE’S FATHER”.😂👪 . . Sentebale says many women in this part of Botswana (Kasane) are so desperate to make a living, they are “left with little or no options but to risk their lives and engage in unprotected, commercial or intergenerational sex. And that makes Kasane uniquely vulnerable to the spread of HIV. In this district alone, a staggering one out of every five people aged between 15 and 49 has HIV.Many of the children who have HIV were infected in the womb by their mothers. At one clinic, 700 patients are registered for anti-retro viral drugs. . . #meghanmarkle #duchessofsussex #royalfamily #britishroyals #royals #princeharry #sussexroyaltour #royaltourafrica

On the 26th September 2019, The Duke of Sussex @sussexroyal, Sentebale co-founding patron, visited Kasane Health Post, Botswana, to show his support of our work for young people affected by #HIV. On arrival The Duke was greeted by Richard Miller, Sentebale’s Chief Executive. Richard joined Sentebale in May 2019. In Kasane, 1 in 5 people aged between 15 and 49 live with HIV. The area, a transit point between four countries, is affected by a high HIV infection rate with transactional sex and unemployment driving risky behaviour. Sentebale expanded work in Botswana in 2016, over 47 clubs have been established around the country for young people coming to terms with living with #HIV, reaching over 1,250 adolescents monthly. In addition, the team has held 15 weeks of camp, attended by 1,115 campers. Highlights of the visit included HRH’s reunion with #LetYouthLead advocate Tlotlo Moilwa, whom he met in 2017 at a roundtable event hosted at the London School of Hygiene & Topical Medicine, a conversation with Sentebale advocates on their peer’s needs in the HIV response, a live broadcast of #RadioPositive with DUMA FM, and a discussion on the impact Sentebale’s clubs and camps have on young people in Botswana. Katlego Moara, Sentebale advocate said: “Comparing the level of confidence of campers on day one of camp to day four, you can see the change in confidence as they start to believe in themselves.” Support Sentebale by signing up to receive our latest news or by making a donation.

The Duke planted a baobab, which are severely under threat across Africa, which will live for 1000 years!

Each child grew their sapling from seed in a mission to restore the Chobe Forest Reserve. They were all grown in recycled milk tins from the elephant orphanage, using fertilised soil from the orphans’ dung!

The park is home to a huge elephant population – more than 17,000 – along with some of the world’s most diverse and vibrant eco-systems. The people, wildlife and whole area rely on the Chobe River to survive, but many species and indigenous trees are sadly now extinct. There is critical need to secure the forest so wildlife have access to the river.

The Duke was welcomed by his close friend Dr Mike Chase, Founder of Elephant Without Borders, who has dedicated his life to supporting Botswana’s people and Elephants. ‘If you look after nature, it will look after you’
