The Prince of Wales hosted a reception for 80 young leaders taking part in a programme launched by his charity Mosaic, this evening.

Founded by His Royal Highness in 2007, Mosaic creates opportunities for young people growing up in our most deprived communities through its mentoring programmes.

During the reception at St. James's Palace this evening, The Prince was joined Her Royal Highness Princess Badiya bint El Hassan of Jordan, who is a supporter of the charity and its International Leadership Programme.

The aims of the programme are: to develop leadership ability, to develop understanding of key global issues and to equip delegates to become active and positive leaders in their local community. Delegates come from countries as diverse as Afghanistan to Algeria and from backgrounds as varied as teachers to economists.

Young people aged 25 - 35 from 16 countries attended the event, which comes as part of Celebrate Enterprise week, paying tribute to entrepreneurs who have been helped as a result of The Prince's charities.

Figures published earlier this week revealed that The Prince's charities have helped more than 125,000 entrepreneurs in the UK and overseas and given business support to 395,000 people.

Over the course of the week, His Royal Highness has attended various events with his charities such as The Prince's Trust, Youth Business International, The Prince's Initiative for Mature Enterprise (PRIME), PRIME Cymru, and Business in the Community.
