The students of Desai School in Kawangware will soon have better learning facilities thanks to the noble initiative undertaken by Rusinga School in partnership with sponsors such as Strathmore Business School (SBS), UAP Insurance, CFC Stanbic Bank and JTL. On the occasion of their 40th Anniversary, Rusinga School organized a golf tournament on 17th July, 2015 at Karen Country Club.
Representing SBS during the tournament was a 4 ball team that includes: Dr. George Njenga, Mr. Paul Ouma, Mr. Joachim Githinji and Mr. Peter Karanja. The tournament was a good networking platform for the many organizations that were represented at the event. For SBS this was a CSR opportunity, a time to live up to our virtue of ‘Transforming Africa,’ and what a better way to do this than to begin with our very own society.
The event proceeded to the evening where all the participants were hosted for dinner coupled with an awarding ceremony for all the golfers. Speaking during the awarding ceremony Dr. Njenga, the winner of the golf tournament, underlined the importance of giving back to the society and leaving a legacy. “Learning institutions have the key role of shaping and molding our children into future virtuous leaders. It is imperative that we invest in such worthy causes that are geared towards developing our society,” said Dr. Njenga.
The proceeds of this event will go towards reconstructing Desai School based in Kawangware, one of the largest informal settlements in Nairobi. The school will benefit by getting spacious classrooms, reading materials and basic learning facilities and thus give the students a good learning experience.
