Reasons behind the project
At the dawn of a most promising career, Félix wishes to combine his performance with a personal commitment, one linked to his family background and his education, one that goes beyond just playing tennis.
Félix’s objective is to give meaning to his career and have a positive impact that reaches further than the tennis courts.
He has therefore decided to commit himself to a cause that is close to his heart: building a better future for the younger generations in Togo, his father’s home country
With this project, I give meaning to my career. Tennis is an incredible sport that teaches me many values, including hard work, perseverance and humility. I carry these values with me when I leave the tennis court, in order to have a positive impact as a citizen of the world. I contribute to the future of young generations, especially the most disadvantaged, and I am happy to be able to do this through tennis.

2,500 children supported by the project
The money raised will finance the EduChange programme, set up by the NGO CARE to improve the conditions of young people in the Kara region of Togo.
The project is based on three key focuses:
- Protection of children’s rights
- Access to education
- Access to sport
The aim of the project is to earn as many points as possible, in order to provide school kits, training, medical and psychological assistance, academic and sports equipment, etc. More than 2500 children now benefit from the #FAAPointsForChange. project, of whom 60% are young girlsSupport the program
In December 2022, Félix Auger-Aliassime travelled to Togo to see the progress achieved by the FAApointsForChange programme. The young Canadian visited villages where the project supports Togolese youngsters and met some of the children whose daily lives he helps to improve through his on-court prowess.
For three years, I was sent photos and reports, but that’s not the same as being able to experience it, to feel it, to speak directly to the young people who benefit from the programme. It’s amazing to see that we can change their lives. During the trip, I also saw areas that could be improved or refined. This is just the beginning. I’m hoping to build something solid here.
