Alter-Egaux is a nonprofit organization based in the north of France whose mission is to assist children facing personal, family and social difficulties.
To help them find their way in life and build a future, the organization decided to place sport at the heart of its educational project. Thanks to funding granted by the Fondation LACOSTE, Alter-Egaux allows a dozen youngsters to play tennis on a regular and long-term basis at the Valenciennes Tennis Club. This pilot project is based on a solid method involving regular assessment of how tennis impacts the young people’s lives. Based on results, the organization eventually hopes to expand the program to about thirty young people.
