Following Roger Federer’s trip to Ethiopia, Serena Williams became the second tennis player to visit Africa this month.
Serena visited Kenya this week to help open The Serena Williams Secondary School – an institute she helped fund. This is Serena’s second school in the country, and she vowed to continue her philanthropic work there.
“I’m very happy to be here and, besides winning the Australian Open, this is more victory for me,” said Serena. “I will always hold this school dear to me and I hope that I’ll get more chances to continue with this venture.”
The new Secondary School will become the main center for second level education. It was built through a partnership between the Build African Schools initiative and Hewlett Packard and is designed to empower African students through education.
