Josephs' kids in Cameroon

Joseph Oyebog, former ATP Pro and member of Cameroon's Davis Cup team, is a beloved tennis coach in our local community.  Joseph's life mission has been to put others first: he founded Oyebog Tennis Academy in his native Cameroon.  OTA is a program that has given thousands of impoverished children a chance to play tennis, giving them skills, self-confidence, education, and a chance at a better life.  OTA's vision is to build a school at the tennis academy site, hire teachers and bring hope and opportunity to kids who grow up with so little.

Now, Joseph and OTA need our help.

Thanks to the support of those in the Fairfield and Westport communities, who haved donated used tennis gear, time, and money, OTA has grown dramatically in the last 18 years. This year's funds have already been used to build part of the school building you are seeing in the video.  OTA is now looking to raise money to ship a large container of racquets, balls, shoes, and clothes to Cameroon.  Our garages are full of equipment, but we need the funds to ship it overseas.  Our goal is to raise the $5,000 necessary by the end of September.

Please help Oyebog Tennis Academy fulfill these kids' dreams by donating to the cause. And thank you for spreading the word!
