Roger Federer is a champ on and off the tennis court! He has been funding the building of schools in Africa for years, but recently went to visit the schools for the first time. The kids were so excited to see him and welcomed him with open arms and grateful hearts!
“I’m so happy and emotional that I can see a preschool of this quality here–it’s quite extraordinary,” Federer said. ”The community is so committed to helping the kids, its so important (as) the foundation for learning.”
According to BuzzEverytime, To date, the Roger Federer Foundation has spent $13 million over the past decade, touching the lives of more than 285,000 children. With renewed focus and the involvement of local teachers and NGOs, it plans to be feeding and teaching one million kids by 2018!
