The USIU-Africa Alumni Association hosted an inaugural alumni charity golf event that brought close to 60 players including alumni, sponsors and friends of USIU-Africa, at the Muthaiga Golf Club on Friday, June 8, 2018.

USIU-Africa Alumni Association’s goal for the tournament was to facilitate talented students with exceptional potential, but who are financially constrained to afford university education. The charity event was therefore borne with the aim of contributing towards an endowment fund whose proceeds will support an Alumni Scholarship fund for such needy students.

The tournament culminated into a prize giving ceremony presided over by Muthaiga Golf Club Captain James Ondigo where the best players were awarded with trophies.
