Prince Harry will travel to Singapore and Tokyo in August to raise money for Sentebale, the charity he co-founded in 2006 to help children affected by poverty, inequality, and HIV/AIDS in Lesotho and Botswana.
On August 12, Harry will play in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup at the Singapore Polo Club. The event is expected to raise over $1 million for Sentebale’s programs, which provide education, healthcare, and psychosocial support to children affected by HIV/AIDS.
Harry will also join a summit on the power of sport and philanthropy in Tokyo on August 9. The summit is organized by ISPS Handa, a global sports marketing company that is a major sponsor of Sentebale.
“I am honored to be returning to Singapore to play in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup,” Harry said in a statement. “This event is a great opportunity to raise awareness and funds for Sentebale’s work, and I am looking forward to seeing the support from the Singapore community.”
Harry has been a passionate advocate for Sentebale since its inception. He has visited Lesotho and Botswana on numerous occasions to meet with the children who benefit from the charity’s programs.
“Sport has the power to change lives,” Harry said. “It can bring people together, build confidence, and create opportunities. I am excited to be part of the summit in Tokyo to discuss the power of sport and philanthropy, and to look at how we can use sport to make a difference in the world.”
The Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup is one of the most prestigious polo tournaments in the world. It is expected to attract some of the best polo players from around the world.
The summit on the power of sport and philanthropy in Tokyo is also expected to be a high-profile event. It will bring together leaders from the worlds of sport, philanthropy, and business to discuss how sport can be used to make a difference in the world.
Harry’s visit to Singapore and Tokyo is a testament to his commitment to Sentebale and to the power of sport to change lives. His presence at these events will help to raise awareness and funds for Sentebale’s work, and it will also help to highlight the power of sport to make a difference in the world.
