A Transformational Journey to a New Life

When Patrick Kisomanga moved to Phoenix 15 years ago, he had never heard of golf. Patrick grew up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, during a brutal civil war. For over a year and a half, Patrick, along with his parents and two brothers, survived in an African concentration camp. But everything changed after he and his family were rescued.

After arriving in the United States, he connected with The First Tee of Phoenix. At the time, he had never touched a golf club, but that didn’t prevent him from participating in the program.

The First Tee provided Patrick with direction, friendships and limitless opportunities. Your gift can make a difference in a young person’s life.
