FBCH Group, one of Zimbabwe’s leading financial institutions, has announced a sponsorship of $200,000 for the 2024 Zimbabwe Open Golf Tournament, according to Trynos Kufazvinei, the group’s Chief Executive Officer. The announcement was made during a meeting attended by representatives from the Ministry of Sports and Recreation, Mr. Livingstone T. Gwata, Chairman of the Zimbabwe Open Golf Committee, the Zimbabwe Golf Association President, the 2024 FBC Zimbabwe Open Golf Tournament Organising Committee, and other valued sponsors.

Kufazvinei expressed his pride in being part of this significant event on the Zimbabwe sports calendar. “I stand before you today filled with a deep sense of pride as we gather to announce the 2024 FBC Zim Open Golf Tournament. It is my true honour to stand before you today as the title sponsor of this event,” he said.

The FBCH Group is known for its commitment to community development and social responsibility. Kufazvinei highlighted the company’s dedication to building communities, stating that their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy is driven by evolving stakeholder and community needs. The group aligns its CSR efforts with national, regional, and global priorities, including the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In the past year, the FBCH Group invested over $580,000 in various community-driven initiatives, including the construction of a 50-cubic Biogas Digester, provision of farming equipment such as a 75-horsepower tractor and related implements, and the payment of school fees for children at Shungu Dzevana Children’s Home in Mhondoro. The group also embarked on constructing a classroom block at Gurungweni Secondary School in Chikombedzi, among other initiatives.
