Last month, Serena Williams fell to Angelique Kerber in the final of the Australian Open. This month, the most dominant female tennis player of all time is rebounding not on the tennis court but in a town in Jamaica.

Williams and her charity, the Serena Williams Fund, recently finished building the Salt Marsh Primary School in Jamaica.

But Williams didn't just show up to take pictures at a ribbon-cutting ceremony, she actually helped build the school from the foundation up.

Enjoyable work. Serena Williams Fund's 3rd school- this time we partnered with Helping Hands Jamaica to build the Salt Marsh Primary School #swf #education Posted by Serena Williams on Monday, February 8, 2016

And from the looks of things, she made a huge difference in the lives of these kids.

Got to read to some of the cutest kids yesterday from Salt Marsh where we built a new school building. #SerenaWilliamsFund Helping Hands Jamaica Posted by Serena Williams on Wednesday, February 10, 2016

Williams partnered with Helping Hands Jamaica Foundation to build the Salt Marsh Primary School, and her donation of time and money proves her legacy will stretch far beyond the 21 Grand Slam titles and countless on-court moments of magic.
