If you think Oprah is the only famous person going around opening schools in Africa, you are dead wrong. Plenty of celebs are helping our neighbor to the east establish educational institutes, including tennis star Serena Williams.

Williams will visit Kenya this week to help open The Serena Williams Secondary School – an institute she helped fund. The school – which was built through a partnership between the Build African Schools initiative and Hewlett Packard — will open in Matooni in just 3 short days and is designed to empower African students through education.

Dickson Mutaiti, the Director of Projects at Build African Schools in Kenya, said: “We are indeed honored to have Ms Williams visit Kenya at this momentous time in American history when we have a new President elect who has roots in Kenya. During her visit, Ms Williams will officially open a secondary school put up in her name, to give chance to needy primary school students who want to pursue secondary school education.”

So a big thumbs up to Serena Williams for putting her money where her mouth is and helping fund a beautiful new school!
