foundation

Fundación Rafa Nadal nace en Noviembre de 2007. Surge del deseo del propio tenista y de su familia de ayudar a niños y adolescentes socialmente desfavorecidos que corren el riesgo de quedar excluidos de la sociedad. Su contribución permite ofrecer una vida mejor a personas en todo el mundo, a las que el deporte les abre una nueva puerta hacia la esperanza. In October 2010, opened the Rafael Nadal Tennis School in Anantpur, India, which hosts district, state and national-level tournaments, as well as lay equal emphasis on the children’s education and tennis training…Received 2011 Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year for his contributions through the Rafa Nadal.

Mission

The mission of the Rafa Nadal Foundation is to offer educational programs to the deprived, with a common denominator: sport. We in the Foundation are convinced that sport is a basic tool for personal and social integration and therefore, it becomes the focal point upon which we base all our actions.

By means of two of the key elements in the life of Rafa Nadal, i.e. education and sport, we are able to foster some of the values we consider of greatest importance for the personal growth of each one of our beneficiaries: exertion, respect and trust.

Our work is currently carried out through collaboration with Foundations and Organizations who have proven experience in projects along the lines of the targets set by our Foundation. We join them in order to implement new integration and development programs, on both a national and an international scale.
