Following adequate planning and mobilization, Triad Foundation reaped astonishing participation, cheerful handouts and marvelous support from individual and group sponsors. Supporting education, health and environmental undertakings, the foundation has completed four schools since inception.


“2017 and 2018 contributions from the tournaments will go to Supporting Genesis Joy Primary school in Mathare Slum, Nairobi,” said Triad Director Cecilia Wahinya. “We started with the vision of building toilets, to help the school to improve on sanitation, but after evaluating their current conditions further, we saw it wise to aim for a bigger impact, and that’s how the plan to build the classroom block came to be.”
