Founded in 2016 by 3 strong woman who were inspired by God and a great quote by Paul Shane Spear “As one person I cannot change the world, BUT I can change the world of one person”
Founder 1: Allison Foster; wife, mother to Luke and Mattanah, committed trail runner
Allison’s heart for sharing and spreading the love of God to those who feel that they have no voice is infectious. She is the epitome of being the hands, voice, feet, ears of God. Allison is the main driver behind our homeless projects and feeding schemes.
Founder 2: Dorel Janse van Rensburg; wife, mother to Desirè and Chris , committed to 5am gym classes
Dorel has an accounting background and is key in keeping all the finances in order. In addition to being responsible for the finances, Dorel operates in her gift which is prayer and counselling. She is key in driving our partnership with Life Link. Dorel has completed the intense counseling programme and works very closely with Sharon and the team at LifeLink to aide with any support they may require.
Founder 3: Eleanor Ramjee; wife, mother to Ezra and Morgan, non-master of golf
Eleanor is a true miracle and testament of God’s Grace. She resonates completely with all the projects that Pillars of Hope runs. At some stage of her life she was impacted by feeding schemes at school, someone giving her a track to say God loves you. At this stage of her life, she is deeply connected to a calling, which is to change the world for someone, through Education and Skills. Don’t give someone a fish, teach them how to fish.
