Wilson Donate to Sam's MOTIVATE AFRICA Tour 2021!
Massive Thanks to our friends again at the Wilson Tennis Team at Amer Sports in Germany for their sporting love during these unprecedented global time by donating equipment to Africa Tennis Aid for coach Samuel Porreh Jalloh in support of his humanitarian MOTIVATE AFRICA tour in 2021.
As a young boy, Sam survived the horrific civil war that ravaged his home country of Sierra Leone for 11 ruthless years, killing over 120,000 innocent people including some of Sam's loved ones. Escaping the fate of becoming a child soldier, a future that many other young boys faced, Sam endured years of hunger and starvation before finding solace and a saviour through his commitment to playing tennis, leading to a successful career as a International tennis coach in the UK inspiring his own book 'How Tennis Saved My Life - Play Tennis not War'
In 2021, Sam, along with a team of volunteers hopes to travel to the continent of his roots to visit schools, communities and centres to help educate & inspire the next generation to believe in their abilities and show them that they can follow their dreams.
Sam's MOTIVATE AFRICA Tour 2021 hopes to visit 25 countries including Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Benin, Togo, Ivory Coast and if he can raise enough funds would like to also visit Kenya, South Africa and some Central African countries to help motivate the underprivileged younger generations of Africa through sports, tennis and motivational speaking. He wants to include lots of tennis, presentations, group sessions with the children and more much - hoping to capture footage and eventually turn it into a documentary.
Christmas came early! -- Wilson kindly has sponsored 12 dozens balls, lots of T-shirts and shorts, about 20 pairs of tennis shoes, dozens of tennis ball keychains, loads of mini rackets and mini tennis bags which would be sure to benefit Sam's mission to bring tennis to more youths in Africa!
