DISCAPACIDAD INTELECTUAL, BUENOS AIRES
The Development of Tennis initiative has been developed for mentally handicapped children in schools in Buenos Aires with its partner charity, Fundación Baccigalupo, supported by Gabriella Sabatini. Activities were due to start in 2020 but were put on hold during the pandemic, during which 700 children were kept active by generating daily videos with a variety of different sporting and cognitive challenges. As well as continuing on the virtual platforms, activities are now beginning face to face and it is the programme’s firm objective for 2022 to continue strengthening the tennis initiation schools and attract new students.
IC Philanthropy currently has a portfolio of 15 programmes and start-ups taking place across the world.
