In 2012, a single donation was made to purchase a 16-acre plot of land less than 25 miles outside the capital of Douala, Cameroon. It was acquired with the purpose of creating an oasis for the children of OTA, a place that they could call their own. In the past few years we have built a facility that currently houses 16 of OTA's most deserving kids. They are fed and receive tennis training on campus and bused to local schools to continue their formal...

This is Leigh. She is 6 years old now. She has been playing tennis since she was three. This video was taken when she was five. There are at least 20 more children with her extraordinary ability. The only resource they have is OTA. OTA takes children from the age of three and through tennis, helps them develop not only tennis skills but life skills. Everyone benefits, though not all have Leigh’s potential. With your help, Leigh and others like her might someday play on the world stage, might someday be number one in the world! This will not happen without OTA and without your support. Please consider a generous donation now to help Leigh and the other 1,250 children in the OTA program reach their full potential.

  2. Souza Tennis Center Fund

    Donation: $300.00 / $1,000,000.00
    In 2012, a single donation was made to purchase a 16-acre plot of land about 40 miles outside the capital of Duala, Cameroon. It was acquired with the purpose of creating an oasis for the children of OTA, a place that they could call their own. In the past few years we have built a facility that currently houses 16 of OTA's most deserving kids. They are fed and receive tennis training on campus and bused to local schools to continue their formal education. The vision for the future is that more than 250 children can live, train and be educated on site at the Souza Academy, giving them incredible access to opportunities previously beyond their reach. To realize this vision we will be working hard to raise the funds needed to continue construction and keep moving plans forward. The facilities currently include 4 clay tennis courts, a dormitory for 8 boys and 8 girls, bathrooms and showers, a water tower, a pinneaple plantation, and a functioning kitchen.
