Adolf Ogi visits IMBEWU

28.04.2006 | Foundation

Adolf Ogi, former president of the Federal Council of Switzerland and now Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace for the United Nations, visited the IMBEWU project in South Africa. IMBEWU, active in the townships of Port Elizabeth in South Africa, is supported by the Roger Federer Foundation. Mr. Ogi took the time to see for himself what the impacts of the organisation are, during a 4-day tour of South Africa, upon invitation by the South African Minister of Sports.


Mr. Ogi spent his day visiting the different projects IMBEWU runs in the townships. He encouraged everyone involved to try to help by means of sports - above all through the cooperation with the Roger Federer Foundation.

He had lunch with the children at their cantine at Ndzondelelo High School. Before learning a traditional dance he animated the kids present to "take their future into their own hands, to grow to the leaders of tomorrow by education, culture and sports. Sport represents the best school of life, permitting to commit errors and learn from them - without consequences."


Adolf Ogi finished his stay by planting a 'tree of hope' close to the sportsground NIKE and the Roger Federer Foundation had inaugurated this year.

Ahhh!! This was wonderful to read today. Mr Ogi is so vivacious, I imagine he did the traditional African dance very well!
