Anir Experience/Anir Foundation
The Anir Foundation a (501c3) non-profit, was founded by Adrienne Belafonte Biesemeyer along with
her daughter Rachel Blue in 1997. After visiting South Africa three times between 1995-1997, news
broke in the USA about the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Southern Africa. Adrienne and Rachel felt they
wanted to get involved and wanted to encourage others to get involved. Lot's of organization give $$ to
a problem, but few give man power and a chance for individuals to make a difference with their own
Anir Experience is here to help North Americans see and to experience the beauty and wonder of the
continent of Africa. There is far more than the bad news the media delivers, there are wonderful
peaceful countries on the continent and Anir Experience offers its participants a glimpse of this wonder
while having the opportunity of giving a helping hand.
