Roger Federer: "Education breaks the cycle of poverty"

In launching his foundation, Roger Federer decided to help children living in poverty by providing them with education opportunities. Fifteen years later, new initiatives are being developed to respond to early childhood learning needs.

When asked why the foundation had expanded into the early education territory, Roger explained: "As a dad, I see how much you learn from 0 to 7 years old. Learning how to walk, how to talk, how to eat by yourself, become self-sufficient. It is amazing and I become more and more inspired to give my kid or any other kid in the world an opportunity to learn a lot at that age."
