SGA supports naliaka golf academy

Naliaka Golf Academy, founded by the legendary Rose Naliaka, the first female professional golfer in the country, received a major boost following a sponsorship partnership with SGA Security. The Naliaka Golf Academy is an institution that teaches golf to children from economically challenged backgrounds.

As part of the sponsorship deal, SGA Security will cater for transport, tournament entry fees, meals, insurance among other fees that will aid young golfers in excelling in golf sports for the next three years.

“We are proud to partner with Naliaka Golf Academy through SGA-EVT Foundation in ensuring that the game of golf is made accessible to young girls from economically challenged backgrounds through education and mentorship. SGA Foundation is keen on empowering children through education and sports,” said Julius Delahaije, SGA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

The Naliaka Golf Academy has nurtured over 30 girls from Nairobi’s lower-income neighbourhoods. Among the top 10 female golfers in Kenya today, five of them are from the Academy with reputable names such as former top female golfer Naomi Wafula, Mercy Nyanchama, Mary Monari, Agnes Nyakio, Ashley Awuor and 2018 Sigona Ladies Open winner Serah Khanyereri.

The organisation is also in talks with a Holland-based golf store, Golf Plaza, to support Naliaka Academy with golf equipment.

“We have already secured the first batch of equipment as donations from Golf Plaza to Rose Naliaka Foundation. Golf Plaza has assured us that they will continue to provide equipment so that these children going through training continue to benefit,” said Delahaije after presenting the equipment at Golf Park.

SGA Foundation is committed to serving the community through strategic partnerships in strategic pillars focused on children’s education and sports, health & safety and security education, healthcare and the environment.
