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.

I always think of the others, especially the ones in need. We should never forget that there are children with more problems in an even degraded pedagogical environment than ours. Spin the Wheel is a reminder that there are lots of things we can do to make this world a better place.

Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.

I like loving, feeling, walking, socializing, working, talking, helping, learning and getting excited. I try to make each day different from the others working with all my senses and empathizing with people. I am fond of nature, humans and animals. I want to see you, my son and all the children in the world smiling every single day. I wish pain to exist no more, only tears of happiness. I long for everybody to rejoice.

Think of the world without frontiers and how a man without any barriers can function that is genuinely and lavishly. I like to think of the world as a unity and share with others the joy found in little things..
