In Zambia, Federer Shares Foundation's Aspirations
Roger Federer kicked around the football with kids, talked with teachers and stood at the blackboard himself on Tuesday as he continued working on his self-named foundation this week in Zambia.
Federer, who's skipping the clay-court season for the second year in a row, visited two community schools in the District of Lundazi in the Eastern Province of Zambia. He also met with the District Council and spent time with parents, children and teachers.
“It is my hope that in 10 years' time all children will have access to early childhood education in Zambia, as it is the foundation of all learning,” Federer said.
On Wednesday, the No. 2 player in the ATP Rankings plans to visit another community school in the Chipata District, where he will participate in a small inauguration ceremony for a new classroom block.
