Now that Serena has won just about every tennis title there is to possibly win, she is taking a little time out for humanitarian efforts. She is currently in Kenya and officially inaugurated the Serena Williams Wee Secondary School
Serena described her tour of Wee as fabulous, saying the whole project was about changing the lives of hundreds of students for the better. She outlined her plans for the future following her announcement that tennis was less important to her compared to helping other people to realise their dreams.
“The computer technology provided by Hewlett Packard (HP) will give students an opportunity to read and realise their dreams in life” she said. The star player said she intends to open more schools in partnership with HP with the aim of empowering children.
“Education is supreme because it is the way out of poverty all over the world,” she told a gathering that included area Member of Parliament Peter Kiilu.
Wee Secondary is the second educational project Serena has established in Kenya after the Serena Secondary School established in Matooni last November. The school has a special class for the deaf, which is the first of its kind in the region.
Wonderful! Good look Serena.
