Kenya Society for the Blind (KSB) started operations on the 18th of October 1956. Its key mandate were:
KSB was formed through an Act of Parliament but this does not give it the ability to draw funds from the exchequer. KSB has always relied on donations from well-wishers and partners to achieve its mandate; which is to give hope to the blind.
Dr. K. I. Laibuta, an alumnus of KSB, is spearheading a campaign aimed at raising money for Kenya Society for the Blind. He is going to play 1,000 holes (about 56 rounds) of golf in what is dubbed “1,000 Holes Blind Golf Challenge” between 2nd April and 29th July. His final round shall be played at the picturesque Limuru Country Club on the 29th of July.
Dr. Laibuta is running with this campaign and is sharing his life, success and challenges to create the desired influence and impact and is appealing for all persons of goodwill to stand up and support him ... support us. I am appealing to all of you to rally behind Dr. Laibuta.
How can you be part of the program that is going to give thousands of blind Kenyans confidence to face the future?
To begin with, a contribution of any amount and a pledge to rally at least about 10 friends to join you raise any amount you will set as a target towards this goal will be very recommendable. Of course a fabulous gift in cash and/or in kind will be awarded to the top three Council crusaders in this campaign.
The 1000 Holes Blind Golf Challenge campaign will employ multifaceted approaches and strategies:
KSB is looking for a partner to donate a 4-wheel vehicle to KSB to be the prize for the first person to make a hole-in-one on one of the Par-3 holes to be selected. The car will be displayed to potential customers during the tournament. Terms and condition shall apply. The benefits will include:
During the auction, the auctioneer will extol the benefits of servicing cars with the partner among other benefits as a marketing strategy. This will help build the interaction of the dealer/partner Brand and golfers.
Donate Dealer’s branded merchandise to be given during the raffle. This can be tailor-made to give maximum visibility of the Dealer’s brand both before and during the raffle.
