Our MISSION

To provide children in Cameroon, Africa the opportunity to improve their lives through the sport of tennis.

We envision a Cameroon where every child has developed the skills and confidence to build a better future for themselves and their communities.

For the past two decades OTA has provided over 12,000 children with access to tennis equipment, food, clothing, education, and tournament opportunities

WE NEED YOUR HELP

For hopefully the last time, TennisFest has gone virtual. As our premier fund-raising event, TennisFest is so important to keeping OTA running, and now more than ever OTA is playing a critical role in the lives of our kids.

For those of us who are lucky enough to live in a handful of wealthier countries, life is returning to normal – or at least a normal. But for those in Cameroon, like much of the world, vaccines are scarce, treatment is expensive and inaccessible, and hope still seems a long way off. OTA’s kids continue to need support and sanctuary more than ever.

For the past two years, we have kept the lights on at Souza, the kids fed at Bonaberi, and our players in school and learning, alongside paying for urgently needed medical care and supplies for everything from malaria to COVID. But amidst the darkness, the flame you helped us light at Souza has burned brighter than ever as we increased our capacity, hosted our first IMF tournament, and forged champions. That beacon of hope for the children of Cameroon wouldn’t exist without your support – and we can’t keep it burning without your continued generosity.

Please, click below to make a generous donation to the children of Cameroon today, or cement your commitment by starting an ongoing pledge, and give a child the luxury of hope.

MEET LEIGH

This is Leigh. She is 9 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.
