Introducing: The Class of 2016/17!

In September of 2012, CLUBHOUSE International gave out its first ever set os scholarships to ten students from Sheni and Rujeko Primary Schools in Dangamvura, Mutare. While we can’t pay for all the students we would want to because of financial constraints, we also introduced ‘CLUBHOUSE Ambassadors’; students who, while not receiving a scholarship, are invited to partake in all the CLUBHOUSE leadership, citizenry, and community service events.

Bowling Fundraiser Thanks and Report

On December 27th 2015, the Sigma Lambda Beta Alumni Network of West Michigan hosted their second Annual ‘Bowling for a Cause’ event, proceeds from which were donated to our 2016 Scholarship fund.

Money raised from the event, coming in at just under $300, will make up the bulk of our first term scholarship funds. Beyond just the funds, the event was a fantastic show of friendship, fun, and competition. Our gratitude to the brothers and everyone who attended the event cannot be overstated.

Pictures from the event can be found at this link.

If anyone else would like to make a contribution to the 2016 Scholarship fund for our students in Zimbabwe, you can do so at this link.

Thank you gain, and happy New Year!

Do Cyber Monday for a Cause!

Are you doing any shopping on Amazon? Would you like to donate to CLUBHOUSE without spending an additional cent?

In light of the American Thanksgiving holiday that has recently just passed, several shopping ‘holidays’ have been birthed, the least of which is not Cyber Monday!

If you are going to be shopping online today- make sure it’s through Amazon. And if it is indeed through Amazon, make sure you use our Amazon Smile link here! it is at no extra cost or inconvenience to you, but a small percentage of the proceeds will go towards the scholarships we are handing out for 2016.

 

Thank you for your continued support!

Shifting the Goals: Putting Girls' Soccer On a Level Field

By Mr. Musa Milupi- Executive Director (CLUBHOUSE USA)

Sport has the power to change the world in way that little else can. The words of Nelson Mandela will always be a powerful reality, as seen in Mutare with the annual festival that saw CLUBHOUSE debut girls’ soccer with a game between Sheni and Rujeko primary schools; a groundbreaking move. Around the globe opportunities for young girls to be involved in recreational activities are still fewer than those for young males; the encouragement for them to do so is even more scarce. This has nothing to do with the motivation to participate in an activity any girl desires – it has everything to do with the encouragement and support. Given the opportunity and inspiration – as CLUBHOUSE did with the girls at Sheni and Rujeko primary schools – girls can get the chance to see the power that moving beyond societal confinements has. The girls’ soccer game between the mentioned schools was fiercely contested, raising spirts and feeding the passion of all the students, officials, and community members; a testament to what girls can do for communities given the opportunity from a young age.
