In a study of 25 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, UNICEF estimated that women there spent 16 million hours collecting water each day. Serena Williams established The Serena Williams Fund in aid of this water challenge and to promote equity through education, gender, race, disability and anything else that stands in the way of someone achieving their goals and living their best possible life. 

World-class tennis athlete, businesswoman and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Serena Williams has partnered with key organizations to help build schools in Uganda, Kenya, and Zimbabwe in conjunction with Build Africa. Together with Helping Hands they built the Marsh Elementary School in Trelawny Parish, Jamaica. Serena’s efforts work towards addressing a major problem around the world, particularly in developing countries where girls and women frequently bear the burden of household chores, like collecting water and caregiving responsibilities, which forces girls to leave school. 

Williams is no stranger to hard work as she likes to post pictures and videos on her social media platforms where she is seen painting the schools and getting her hands dirty.“We are making progress but we can keep working even more to increase equality, whether it’s making sure to interview black candidates for tech jobs…standing up to cyberbullying…making sure that our technology is designed by all kinds of people. Eventually, we’re going to make the world better for everyone,” said Williams.
