Choose a new way of supporting a cause in 2021: Donate your birthday!
Instead of birthday gifts, ask your friends and family to donate to teach 21st century life skills to underpriviledged children using the game of tennis.
EduTennis engages a child to learn tennis and life skills in an engaging and fun way. Over time, our expert coaches help children reconfigure their reality to gain the results they want, such as finishing school, completing vocational or other higher studies, become financially independent and plan their lives in a way that is an improvement on the situation they were born into.

At EduTennis, we have changed the way we transact the tennis+life skills training to suit the Covid scenario. We need smartphones and laptops to deliver this hybrid (online+offline version to our participants.
What is the problem we are trying to solve?
Dealing with life's challenges is tough…especially if you are a first-generation school-goer from a below-poverty-line family. Things get doubly hard to handle if you are a girl!
How are we solving this problem?
The EduTennis programme brings the best of tennis skills and combines them with must-have life skills, as listed by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
The value proposition
For millions of children growing up in poverty and want, our EduTennis program offers an aspirational and valuable learning experience that teaches how to achieve your true potential…regardless of the challenges of your immediate circumstances.
Our trained expert coaches use tennis as a hook to impart life-enhancing skills such as protecting oneself from common pitfalls such as child marriage, dropping out of school and early marriage.
