Help empower people with disability in Mozambique.
Support "Tennis on Wheels"
The International Service Committee of the Rotary Club of Shepherdstown is seeking direct financial support towards our "Tennis on Wheels" project.
Coach Teo and his team are volunteering their time and talents to provide this learning and empowering opportunity to people with physical disability, young and old.
Rotarian Dr. Richard Anson, an avid tennis player who travels frequently to Mozambique, has helped Tennis Coach Stelio Carlos (“Teo”) initiate “wheelchair tennis” in mid-2019. In 2019, Teo was the first black African selected as a Wimbledon umpire.
The Rotary Clubs of Shepherdstown and Maputo/Polana, Mozambique have contributed initial financial support of $1,500 to fund the retrofitting of 6 donated wheelchairs, and some basic tennis equipment.
