Roger Federer & The Power of Community


By Louise Harrison, Legends Report Contributor 

Many legends really care about giving back and making a difference, no matter what their industry or profession is. Roger Federer is no exception.

He balances his amazing success as one of the world's top tennis players by giving back in a big way, through the Roger Federer Foundation: an organisation that aims to provide an education to a million children by 2018...

Roger is not only a donor, but has also invested time and energy visiting some of the schools the organisation supports. The video below shows a visit to a pre-school in Malawi, where he really spent time with the children: cooking porridge, carrying the plates, kneeling on the floor while they learn and sitting patiently while several kids ruffled his hair incessantly. All of this investment and care from Roger seems to make him evidently happy and fulfilled.
