The TRIAD Foundation Charity Golf Tournament was held at Muthaiga Golf Club on 15th September, 2017. It was a glorious sunny day and a great day to be outdoor for all 120 players and sponsors in the well set out grounds of Muthaiga Golf Club. The first tee-off was at 7:00 am, with the last at 1.44 pm.
By 6 pm, most of the players were done and ready for the prize giving and dinner.
Winner Mr. Pravin Varsani (right) is congratulated by Triad Director Mrs. Cecilia Wahinya. A total of KShs. 4,177,401 million was raised with proceeds going to The Genesis Joy Project Institute. Genesis Joy serves as a Primary and Secondary school and is located in the Mathare Slum. The school is classified as an alternative Provision to Basic Education and Training facility by the Ministry of Education and hence is not financially supported by the government.
The monies raised will be used to construct an ablution block for students. Further improvements to existing structures will be undertaken once the toilets are complete. The school currently does not have any bathrooms. With a well-received expression of gratitude, Genesis Joy Director and Head Teacher Mr. Christopher Barassa narrated his journey to the Mathare slum where in 2000 he answered a divine call to ensure children of the slum were educated.
Triad Director Mr. Charles Ndungu acknowledged Ms. Linda Odhiambo of Akinah Society for her efforts in partnering with Triad Foundation to identify a needy school through which Genesis Joy was selected for funding. The prize giving dinner was well attended by players, sponsors, friends and staff of Triad Architects. It was punctuated by recognition of TRIAD Architects on their 54th birthday since incorporation on 16th September, 1963.
Mrs. Nisha Van Hoek, Director of Advance Public Relations and Marketing expressed appreciation to the foundation for reaching a milestone 5th Annual Charity Golf tournament. Next year’s Charity golf tournament, to be held on Friday 14th September, 2018 at the same venue.
