About this project

TDKET is a non-governmental organization in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The project uses Tennis as an instrument for showing children education and new perspectives for their lives.
Along with education, there are other aspects to the project. The different generations involved in this project show the children social aspects of our society and teaches them what it means to take responsibility.
Through donations it is possible, to provide the kids with breakfast and lunch, which is really important for their performances on court and at school.
