During the Magical Kenya Open on the DP World Tour, a special repurposed shipping container, filled with golf equipment, is being delivered to the Junior Golf Foundation to help grow the game in Kenya

DP World has continued its partnership with the Kenyan Junior Golf Foundation, by donating a shipping container full of golf equipment, on the first day of the Magical Kenya Open on the DP World Tour.

The 20-foot container was unveiled in a special ceremony today, in the tournament village at Muthaiga Golf Club. It will be moved to the Junior Golf Foundation (JGF) headquarters, based in Nairobi, following the completion of the Magical Kenya Open.

The container houses golf equipment; including balls, clubs, clothing and swing nets.

This is an extension of DP World’s unique Second Life Container initiative, which has returned for the 2023/24 DP World Tour season.

The container is designed to give golf balls a second life in grassroots golf projects around the world. Rather than ending up in landfills, or hidden away in cupboards at home, the unwanted golf balls collected during the season will be repurposed and redistributed to support grassroots golf projects, helping to give more people access to the sport.

Over the past two seasons, 280,000 golf balls have been collected, with the Second Life container covering thousands of kilometres across land and sea, before being sent to grass roots initiatives around the world, including the JGF in Kenya.

JGF has distributed the balls to 30 golf clubs across Kenya, helping nurture talented juniors from as young as five years old.

It already has 100 coaches across the country to teach juniors how to play the sport and distributed golf clubs as training tools for juniors to learn the game.

“We are so pleased to receive this special donation from DP World. The golf balls we have received so far are having a real impact in supporting young talent across Kenya, making the game more accessible, and we’re confident that the golf equipment we’ve received will have the same impact. We can’t thank DPW enough for all they’ve done for our organisation and golf in our country over the past couple of years.” said Regina Gachora, Junior Golf Foundation President.

“We are delighted to continue our support of the Junior Golf Foundation in Kenya, helping to grow the game of golf from the grassroots all the way up to the professional level. The Magical Kenya Open is a key event for us on the DPW Tour, and it’s great we’re able to celebrate the event by donating a shipping container, packed full of golf equipment, to such a fantastic organisation,” said Daniel van Otterdijk, Group Chief Communications Officer at DPW.

Mohammed Akoojee, CEO & MD of DPW for sub-Saharan Africa adds; “At DP World, we pride ourselves in giving back to, and uplifting, the communities in which we operate. Our donation of golfing equipment in a 20-foot container to the Junior Golf Foundation, and wider communities, drives a positive impact in Kenyan sport, nurturing talent that has the potential to form part of the DP World Tour’s future roster.”

“We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with Junior Golf Foundation, in line with our growing presence in Kenya, as we enable the free flow of trade in the region.”
