The Soma Leo Foundation Golf Day 2017
5 July @ 08:30 - 15:00£120
Kenya has very significant weaknesses and issues in its education system. Over 1 million children are not being educated at all and of those who have received only the 6 years of primary schooling nearly half of these children are illiterate or semi-illiterate when they leave.
The Soma Leo Foundation is a small charity supporting the Soma Leo Academy School in Nyiera to help immeasurably change the lives of the children by the provision of an environment where they can attain literacy and develop the skills to grow and become valuable citizens.
We will raise money each year to support 60 children at the school through a series of events including our annual golf day. The main costs of the school are teacher salaries, food and water for the children and electricity. This will represent approximately £675 per month.
Our day will begin with a shotgun start and include a pairs 18 hole Betterball Stableford competition, followed by lunch, awards and a raffle. All money raised will go to The Soma Leo Foundation. Spaces are limited to 80 players.
Funds raised will help the school to continue providing excellent facilities balancing educational priorities between life skills and academic learning.
