WATCH: Federer's trip to Africa featured in The Break


Roger Federer may be sidelined from the ATP Tour right now. But like any champion, he’s keeping busy in more ways than one.

On Wednesday, the 20-time major title holder shared on his Instagram story that he was in Malawi. Federer, whose foundation targets education in Africa and school readiness strategy as part of its overall mission, was on hand to present 3,000 tablets to the Minister of Gender.

The devices are equipped “with content to capacitate early learning mentors. The tablets allow access to knowledge and learning regardless of place, time and qualification,” the Roger Federer Foundation’s Twitter caption explained.

On Thursday morning, Federer published an uplifting Instagram post following his visit.

“Wonderful to see that we are having a real impact on the ground with the,” the Swiss said. “Access to quality early education is crucial as it is the foundation of all learning. I am so happy I made my way to Malawi.”


Since its inception 18 years ago, Federer’s charity organization has benefited nearly two million children across six countries in southern Africa, along with his home nation. The 40-year-old is a two-time recipient of the ATP’s Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year award.

In recent weeks, Federer has been ramping up his training, occasionally teasing followers with photos and videos as he works his way back from a third right knee surgery. While he was in Malawi, it was confirmed Federer would play his hometown tournament in Basel this October.
