Welcome to our Ambassador-in-Africa Program!

In our continued effort to foster education of non-Africans about Africa, Anike Foundation welcomes individuals or groups of people who would like to visit Africa while, at the same time, bringing educational gifts to the people, thereby contributing to the development of education in Africa. With over 150 partner organizations in Africa in 20 countries, we have a broad range of places for you to choose from. If you tell us what countries you would like to visit, we will research the best organizations that will fit your purpose and schedule. Once we conclude our research, we will give you a list of our partner organizations that you can visit. We offer this program to anyone who donates at least $100 to Anike Foundation. You are responsible for making your travel arrangements, including obtaining requisite inoculations, visas, purchase of airline tickets, making accommodation arrangements and feeding. We will provide contact information for our partner organizations that may have information that could be helpful in your planning. Upon your return, we would expect a summary report of your visit, including photos and video clips as appropriate. Upon a satisfactory trip and submitted report, you will be listed on our website as an “Anike Foundation Ambassador” to the countries you have visited.

In our Pilot Program (“Spin the Wheel”), a group of people from Greece will be cycling through Malawi and Tanzania in the summer of 2017. For more information or to follow the progress of our Pilot Program, check out the “Spin the Wheel” homepage:

STW Impressions

“When each of us realizes the potential they really have, and combines it with people around us, then we create small miracles!”

– Kalli Roumeliotou- Spin The Wheel Project Coordinator and Cycling Member 

STW Impressions

The Spin The Wheel team consists of eight cyclists: Alexandros Kataropoulos, Vassilis Dimitriadis, Nikos Fazos, Paul, Georgia Nikiforaki, Dimitra Mitsogianni, Dora Mavriki, and Kalli Roumeliotou. The team’s vision is to make the world an inspiring place to live. The Spin The Wheel team is distributing pencils, notebooks, erasers, pencil sharpeners, books and sports equipment to 6,500 students in 15 schools. This will substantially alleviate the very low book-to-student ratio (about 1 to 10) in these schools. Some of the riders, like Vassilis Dimitriadis, felt compelled to participate in Spin The Wheel. They are delighted to see the children receive their gifts, as well as the smiles on their faces.
