Stephen is the driving force behind the Hopelands project and passionately serves as co-Founder and Director. He has also had the honour and privilege of serving as a Director on numerous non-profit organisations. It was while he was serving as a trustee on the board of another NPO that he developed a compassion for orphans during a week-long visit to Watoto in Uganda in October 2004.
It was this passion for the orphaned and lost children of our country that birthed the desire to see a tangible change happen in the lives of those who need it most.
In addition to the leadership of Stephen and Sharon Lamprecht, Hopelands will be overseen by a Board of Directors who, together with a successful team will offer strategic guidance, help with fundraising efforts, and oversee the smooth operation of the organisation on an on-going basis. Our project team will be composed of the most influential persons in their field of expertise and will be used as a resource for business decisions and management.
- We are connected to a circle of mature Christian leaders who encourage and allow for spiritual accountability.
- We have a group of businessmen who are our accountability partners for financial credibility.
- Stephen is ordained as a Pastor of Five Fold Ministries International.
- Hopelands is modelled on the successful villages of Watoto in Uganda and LIV in Durban.
