The first phase of Jake Agna’s ambitious  project in Cuba was resurfacing the 10 dilapidated tennis courts at the country’s National Tennis Center in Havana.

The renovations to the courts projected to cost $600,000. Generous financial support from the Robert Stiller Family Foundation, The Argosy Foundation, the Serena Fund and other donors made it possible for construction to begin in early May of last year.

The courts are already in use by hundreds of Cubans, including the kids and coaches Agna met on during his first trip to Havana. (Photo by Shona Mossey)
