Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our Goal is to have a zero illiteracy among the Youth in the next 10 years. We are beginning to see the results of our work.

Our Strategy is to get the kids at a very young age and keep them on the tennis court first, Once they are hooked, we make academics a prerequisite.

We have the backing of the Ghana Tennis Federation . We also use programs from the International Tennis Federation to achieve our goals.

We have re instituted the National Junior Tennis League. We have also established Ghana as a Destination on The ITF Junior World Tour.
