Our first home: Hope Cottage – Magaliesburg

Our vision at Hopelands has always been to inspire “hope” in a hopeless world. In September 2017, 19-hectares of undeveloped agricultural land was donated to us. Since then we have been hard at work trying to get the property re-zoned for the building of the village for orphaned and abandoned babies and children.   Signing the transfer documents. After spending…

The team put together what they envisioned for the project with the goal being a complete, self-sustaining village with 20 homes that will accommodate 120 children. A home where they can enjoy life with a…

Our ‘sites’ are set on progress

Hopelands put in a marathon 6-hour session on Friday night. Together with our planner, we strategised and prepared our Site Development Plan. The preparation was necessary in order to get the stamp of approval from our overseeing architect and engineer. We’re getting ever closer to submitting our SDP to the Municipality and so we are calling on…

Boundaries are good
