Since forming his foundation in 2004, Swiss tennis player Roger Federer has been involved with numerous philanthropic efforts.

His primary focus with the foundation is on improving children’s education, especially in places where access is extremely limited. Federer has opened schools throughout the world over the past 15 years. He has already built over 50 preschools in Malawi, South Africa.

During one of his visits to Malawi’s schools, Federer said, “I’m so happy and emotional that I can see a preschool of this quality here–it’s quite extraordinary. The community is so committed to helping the kids, it’s so important (as) the foundation for learning.”
