What to expect
Hello my name is Benedict Nteza I am 17 years old I'm the director of KIds closer to sports a grassroot tennis project. I started kids closer to sports when I was 13 years old when I was watching TV I saw tennis for the first time the next day I got two used tennis balls and and old racket I decided to try hitting the tennis strokes on the wall 2 children admired me when I was bouncing the tennis ball and asked me whether they could play too I gave them and they enjoyed too the next day a group of children came to me asking that they wanted to bounce a tennis ball. Many children kept coming every day and I decided to use tennis for positive change in my community. Cildren and even some old peoplehave loved the sport and have found joy through the game our village has many needy children, orphans and refugee children the project's presence can help to uplift children's life our mission is to empower and educate rural disadvantaged refugee children through tennis.Thank you so much for reading my story.
