Philanthropist, Mary Wangu Maina donates to Captain One Golf Society Children’s Project
Kenyan philanthropist, Mary Wangu Maina, has donated golf clubs and 100 golf balls to the Captain One Golf Society to support their children’s project currently underway at major golf clubs across the country.
Madame Maina, who is currently based in Dallas, United States of America (USA) and a member of the Zimusa Golf Dallas Chapter, mentioned that she and her parents have supported orphans at their church in Nairobi, so supporting Captain One’s Kids Project was nothing new.
She explained that “Zimusa in the United States is a registered non-profit golf club which has Zimbabweans, Kenyans, Nigerians and Botswanans but also open to all Africans and also Safari Dallas which was set up by Kenyans and which includes Kenyans, Zimbabweans and Nigerians”. .
She added that she collects clubs and balls to help motivate and inspire young and future golfers.
She added that at her club Zimusa, they also encourage all young members under the age of 21 to play for free.
“So, I went online. That’s when I saw a page on IG and facebook in Ghana, I messaged and someone replied.
“The photos on this page were communicating to his young people who weren’t from the wealthy and I really wanted them to have the many clubs and that’s how I reached out to the Society to support them,” she noted. .
She added that she would continue to monitor the children’s progress and assured them of her support in achieving their dreams.
Captain Golf Society President and Founder Pius Ayeh Appiah thanked Madame Maina for her support and assured her to deliver the donation to legitimate users.
He mentioned that the children participated in their first national competition which was the Ghana Golf Association Junior Open Championship and he was proud of the progress made by the children.
He said they would continue to do their best to ensure the project gives hope to talented but needy young golfers.
The Founder again appealed to corporate bodies, civil society organizations and individuals to also join the project.
