Legendary Roger Federer spends whopping $13.5m to open 81 schools in Africa

Spending even a little for a good cause does make a difference in the society, but in this case- a man has given away a whopping amount from his own pocket. As long as there are good people breathing down their necks to do good, to be good and to see good, a sense of divine culture continues to shine.

Legendary Roger Federer is a favourite of many. Roger Federer who has done some extraordinary stuff on the turf has done the same off the field as well. Roger Federer spent a colossal sum of $13.5 million to inaugurate 81 schools in Africa. The phrase ‘Millions of money spoils the person in millions of ways’ seems to have failed to live up to its essence all the time.

The needy and elderly people believe that the ones who offer great assistance for them are the real Gods. Iconic athletes are quite often known to donate money to the needy, offer great help in crunch situations. In this case, Roger Federer is one of the superior athletes to have done something great which cannot be put it in words.

The route map to set up his master plan was to make considerable changes with regards to children’s education. The Tennis Superstar has already established 80 pre-schools there. Every expert began with basic education who then went on to become one of the greatest in the world.

With a whopping sum of money that was spent in Malawi (Africa), the foundation got benefited to the amount and is looking forward to changing the lives of over 150,000 Malawian children by 2021 according to the Business Standard reports. “I believe every young child should have the opportunity to spend some years in such a centre because early education is the foundation of learning,” Federer said upon visiting the school.

Roger Federer’s intentions are quite clear. With 15 productive schemes running in Switzerland, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe already, ‘The Roger Federer foundation’ seems to have caught attention in the modern world.  It has set the goal of changing the lives of one million children by the year 2018.
