What we do

Our vision is to make our world an inspiring place to live! That's why in July '17 we are cycling 700km in Africa – from Malawi to Tanzania, escaping from our comfort zone and overcoming our fears.

Our goal is to support on our way 4,500 children, in 15 schools and donate stationary, notebooks and sport equipment. With your support, MTENDE Foundation will also receive 3 laptops and 1 camera. MTENDE Foundation is a Malawian NGO that supports vulnerable communities and community based organizations to develop a well informed and self sustainable community!

Why Africa?

The average classroom lacks the basic essential school supplies that offer a meaningful educational experience for kids. The parents cannot provide the quality and quantity of supplies needed. The lack of school supplies affects negatively the quality of education that the children receive.
In numbers:

  • -1 in 3 adults in Africa cannot read.
  • -In some classrooms, children share 1 pencil between 20 students.
  • -34 million children (1 in 5) are out of school - 90% of them live in rural areas.

My goal is to be helpful to people in need and to show them that anything is possible.

I like to offer and make people smile. I aspire to a world more fair, with more love and solidarity. For me, there are no borders, except in maps, because I believe we have more things that unite us than separate us. I have the most respect for Mother Nature because as the Great Mother to all of us, she deserves very best.
