To help low-income children, particularly homeless, foster, and orphan children and youth, achieve success and fulfillment and give back.
Helping kids has a three-generation history in Anne’s family. When an orphanage in which she had an interest folded, her grandfather took in five orphans and brought them up, with the help of her grandmother and aunt. As a little girl, Anne helped bathe, dress, and feed baby orphans at a children’s home and school her parents founded in rural New Mexico. A few years ago, one of those orphans paid her a surprise visit in Wisconsin.
Since starting her fund in 2004, Anne has volunteered with or supported a number of organizations for at-risk children, either personally or through the fund. “But,” she says, “I want to help more children.” Getting money to do this was the purpose of her World Record climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2015 as an 85-years-young great-grandmother. It’s not as absurd as it sounds. Anne says, “I’m not a professional climber, but I have always loved hiking.” At 76, Anne climbed Pikes Peak and four other mountains over 14,000 feet. She has climbed mountains in the western United States and Mexico, as well as Ayers Rock in Australia, the Great Pyramid in Egypt and the pyramid in Mexico City.
In 2019, Anne plans to be the oldest person to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, again to benefit children and youth through building her foundation. She continues to train by climbing Mummy Mountain daily with her little dog, as well as other mountains around Arizona. Just before going to Africa, she plans to spend time in Colorado to acclimate to a higher altitude and climb taller peaks. Anne comments, “If I combine my love of climbing mountains with my passion for helping kids, what could be better?”

We Help Underprivileged Kids in Latin America become Entrepreneurs Using their Local Resources.
At Wisdom for Kids, we pride ourselves with our relentless dedication to our primary mission of helping underprivileged kids in Latin America become entrepreneurs by using their local resources.
The Foundation is made up of volunteers, called Angels, that:
Identify pockets of kids in need that are in depressed areas
Group the kids into two different age groups
Look for a place to gather with all those kids – with their parents-, in the largest number possible
Deliver one 2 hour session on Entrepreneurship every week to the kids – New groups every week are a priority –
Find two additional Angels to be responsible for
Onboard and trains them to do the same
The two-hour training sessions are conducted with the highest energy levels and motivation in order to inspire the kids. Music, dance, games, physical activities, and storytelling are just some of the techniques that are being used. The sessions inspire the kids to become entrepreneurs using easily accessible resources, with the support of their parents.
The goal of Wisdom for Kids is to Change Latin America through their children:
81 Million kids living in poverty today, which makes up almost 51% of all children in Latin America
22 Million of them have almost no access to drinking water at all
In rural areas,
3 out of 4 kids live in poverty (in urban areas, only 1 out of 4)
90% of indigenous populations are poor
The higher the number of children per home is, the more poverty they’re subjected to.
