International tennis star Roger Federer will be in Namibia on the 4th and 5th of February.
Swiss professional tennis star, Roger Federer, who suffered a groin injury , had to bow out of the Australian open, after losing to defending champion Novak Djokovic 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 6-3 in the semi finals of the game in Melbourne on Thursday.
Besides his professional career, Federer regularly invests in charitable causes, which are close to his heart.
As such, the reason for his upcoming visit to Namibia is a foundation in his name, which supports a local three-year programme. The initiative supports early childhood care and development and was established in partnership with LifeLine/ChildLine and CAFO in 2015.
Efforts of this partnership are aimed at securing a good start into primary education for children 3-8 years of age.
During his visit, Federer will meet President Hage Geingob at State House and visit various schools and ECD centres that are beneficiaries of his foundation.
He will also be briefed on progress regarding the progress affiliated with the Roger Federer Foundation's School Readiness Initiative in the country.
