My father strongly influenced my life, my vision, my aspirations; he raised me to seek to make an impact, and aspire to change the world.


He was a visionary who, early in the advent of the internet, envisioned a program to foster access to internet and technology literacy in Côte d’Ivoire. A man who influenced my choice of education towards a career in technology, having identified it as a career of the future, even in Africa. His work in participative economies, developing economies and advocacy for investment in human capital guides Adei Foundation's approach.

Adei is the nickname of my father's dear mother. A woman he knew too briefly, yet set an expectation for him to aim to achieve great things, a path he also cleared for me to follow. ​

- Odomitchi Anikpo, Founder
