The organization focuses on fostering team spirit and common values, as well as promoting the self-confidence and talent of its students. Zip Zap programs are free of charge for all participants, enabling them to make their dreams come true in safe surroundings.

The Roger Federer Foundation aims to reach one million children by 2018.
