Inspired by Sentebale’s Mamohato Children’s Centre, an incredible facility due to open in 2015, that helps Lesotho’s vulnerable children, the Sentebale garden will transport visitors to the landscape of Lesotho in Southern Africa. Bright colours dance through the garden linking its hard landscaping elements with Lesotho’s native environmental characteristics. The garden is designed to raise awareness of Sentebale’s mission to tackle the stigma of HIV in adolescents, helping to provide access to care and education and providing psychosocial support.

The garden will hopefully feature a poppy native to Lesotho – a first at Chelsea.
