The man is also a compassionate man who has been touching lives the world over with the Roger Federer Foundation, which has just shelled out 13.5 million American dollars to open 81 schools in the rather poor Malawi, availing thousands of children the opportunity to have formal education.
According to reports, “About 13.5 million USD have been invested into the project which Federer hopes would provide support to about 150,000 Malawian children by 2021.” What’s absolutely amazing about this is that Federer has also remained very humble about it, not asking for further press attention to remain on him but the practices themselves: “Federer, however, urged the politicians to lay more emphasis on early education of children, saying that the government of Malawi needs more efforts and more funds to improve the situation.” Children are, after all, the future. That’s the mantra. If we start with the children, then it’s very well possible that these unfortunate situations will start swelling to an end.
The Roger Federer foundation has set the goal of changing the lives of one million children by 2018 and is involved with many other humanitarian projects in Switzerland, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
