Partnering with BNP Paribas and CARE, tennis player Félix Auger-Aliassime commits to advancing education in Togo

(Togo First) - Félix Auger-Aliassime (photo), the young Canadian tennis player of Togolese origin, will support children’s education in Togo, specifically in the Kara region. He will do so under the EduChange project, in partnership with BNP Paribas and NGO CARE. 

At the end of the past week, the youth said he would donate 5$ for every point he wins in official matches. BNP Paribas will for its part give $15, making it $20 per point in total. 

I am a tennis player, but I am also a citizen of the world. I wish to contribute to the future of young generations, the least favored especially, and I am glad to do so through tennis,” said Auger-Aliassime.

Part of the funds mobilized will be used to buy school supplies (books, notebooks, pens, furniture), and will help school uneducated Togolese children. Another part will be used to renovate sports fields in the region of interest.
