Dear Friends,

The 2014 inABLE Golf Tournament took place on October 31th at the Thika Sports Club in Kenya. This annual event was successful again due to the caring players, guests, organizers and sponsors.

We sincerely appreciate every player for coming out to support inABLE’s expanding Computer-Labs-for-the-Blind Program. The charitable funds raised at this year’s golf tournament will fund our assistive technology instructors, who provide vital hands-on training to the blind and visually impaired children, at the Thika Primary and High Schools for the Blind.

Additionally, inABLE is pleased to announce the opening of two new computer technology programs at St. Odas Primary School for the Blind in Kisumu and St. Lucy High Schools for the Blind in Meru, made possible by the generosity of the Rockefeller Foundation and General Electric. These new computer labs bring our program to 4 locations with enrollment of over 1,100 blind and visually impaired students and teachers across Kenya.

Please join us in giving special thanks to all of our considerate golf tournament sponsors, including:

General Motors

Computer Revolution

DTB

Microsoft

Kenya Airways

Sarova Hotels

As always inABLE is tremendously grateful and fortunate to receive funding and resources necessary to continue our mission of empowering the blind and visually impaired students in Africa with Computer Assistive Technology.

We appreciate your support and look forward to a fruitful 2015.

Sincerely,

Irene Mbari-Kirika Executive Director

P.S. While Dr. Laibuta (next to banner on right) is completely blind that did not deter him from playing in the tournament and teaching his team a thing or two about golf.
