Rodger Federer is a Swiss professional tennis player who is ranked world no.3 in men’s singles tennis by the Association of Tennis Professionals. And to this title, he adds his humbleness and makes it well-deserved.

Rodger is involved in many philanthropic activities ever since he established his organization in 2004. His main aim within the foundation is to improve the access to education for children, especially for those places where the access is extremely limited.

For the past 15 years, the professional tennis player has established schools all around the world. In Malawi, in Southen Africa, Federer has already constructed over 50 preschools.

In 2015, the Roger Federer Foundation said that they hope to feed as well as to teach one million kids by 2018. The goal seemed almost unreachable, but the organization was able to make it happen by the time they promised.

Federer has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles, which is the most in history by a male athlete and has held the world’s top spot in the ATP rankings for a record total of 310 weeks. He is also the only person to have won the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year award four times.
