The 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament
This is one of the initiatives under DeKUT Endowment Fund- a fund established with the goal of supporting talented and financially disadvantaged students to access and successfully complete the highly competitive programmes offered by the University through provision of scholarships and bursaries.
It is held annually in partnership with the Nyeri Golf Club and the 1st was held on 20th February. The event registered a record 76 golfers and several amateurs making it a very successful first time tournament. At the end of the day the amateurs present admitted to have learnt a lot, enjoying the game and looking forward to being golfers. Several prizes were up for grabs and every golfer anticipated being the winner. However, fun as it was, it was not a walk in the park. Mr. Andrew Muriuki, Registrar Administration and Finance, playing off handicap 16, won the Kimathi University staff prize after posting 36 (19+17).
This together with Climb to Educate are not just activities to raise money towards the Endowment Fund but have gone a long way in enhancing cohesion within the institution; among the students, staff and the various stakeholders including the community. Plans are underway for the 2nd tournament in 2017.
