Roger Federer is in his native country of South Africa this work doing work for his foundation. Accompanied by his mom, Lynette, the 31-year-old made appearances at several pre-schools in the Limpopo Province.
“It’s very important to me to have the opportunity to do a trip like this,” Federer said. “I’m very excited to see the help that [the Roger Federer Foundation] has provided over the years… Now that I am here I can see it for myself, which is very exciting.”
The Roger Federer Foundation has partnered the locally organized READ Educational Trust since 2010. The aim of the Trust is to promote good quality education in 40 crèches for children between 4-6 years old situated in rural and remote areas in Northern Limpopo. During his visit Roger learned all about the current curriculum and saw for himself the children’s daily activities.
Federer will return home to Dubai to prepare for the upcoming Duty Free Championships which begin on Monday.
