Meeting inspiring people, relax over a round of golf and doing something good at the same time: All this is possible at the Cleven & Auma Obama Invitational (CAOI)!
From 13- 15 June 2016, it was time to ‘golf for a worthy cause’ at spectacular Brunnwies golf course, a facility designed by Bernhard Langer and regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in Europe. As part of the Porsche European Open, the charity tournament raised donations for social projects. Proceeds from the event benefited the Sauti Kuu Foundation and the Cleven Foundation in equal measure. Under the motto ‘Together we are stronger’, through this unique event the two organisations joined forces to generate special support for projects dear to their hearts. For whether Kenya or Germany, both foundations pursue the same aim: to help children and young people shape their futures.
In addition to the golf tournament, there was a special highlight: Dr. Auma Obama was a guest at the charity dinner and offered the more than 100 hand-picked guests exciting insights into her foundation work. Under the motto of ‘Helping people help themselves’, she has developed her very own response to the refugee crisis. With the Sauti Kuu Foundation, she seeks to show children, young people and families ways of making more effective use of their resources and potentials.
