SGA Security and retail chain Golf Plaza have joined hands to sponsor Africa Golf Program (AGP) through donation of hundreds of equipment and accessories.

These include new golf clubs, polo shirts, golf bags, and caps aimed at equipping disenfranchised youth from Kibera slums in Nairobi. This will give them an opportunity to explore their talents by participating in the golf program that has produced some of the leading young golfers in Kenya in the recent past.

Speaking during the handover ceremony, Africa Golf Program Director, Rose Naliaka, thanked SGA and GolfPlaza for boosting the foundation with more equipment for AGP beneficiaries.

“We are grateful to GolfPlaza and SGA for the continued support. The new equipment is a great boost to our golf program and will enable us to replace outdated clubs that we currently have for our beneficiaries. This will also help us recruit younger players into the program.” 

SGA Security Group Chief Executive and Chairman, Julius Delahaije, said the support was meant to help improve golf talent in the country.

“We are delighted to present these golf clubs to young professional golfers who make our country proud through excelling in various golf tournaments.”  

He added that the donation of golf equipment was meant to drive change and help improve the lives of the young golfers by empowering them for the better.

This support adds voice to the ongoing conversation in the country on developing young golfers and making the sport more accessible to new players.
