The Roger Federer Foundation enhances a world where children living in poverty are able to take control of their future and actively shape it thanks to access to high quality early learning and education. They wish to empower as many African children as possible by further developing existing educational services and early support. Although access to primary education has significantly increased in recent years, fundamental problems such as low classroom performance, poor attendance, high numbers of drop-outs and low completion rates still persist or lack of early childhood education. The quality of early support and basic education is crucial as it is the foundation of all learning.
In Africa the Roger Federer Foundation’s strategic priority is therefore the support of existing but poor support services in early childhood care centers, preschools and primary schools for children 3 to 12 years old as well as the improvement of their efficiency and effectiveness. The Foundation ensures that the population in question assumes joint responsibility for the solution of its problems with regard to the contents, organization and finances. The children, their families and their community should contribute their suggestions in both the requirements analysis and the development of innovative possible solutions and actively cooperate in the implementation.
