The team

Who We Are
We are a team of people from many walks of life and with a wide variety of skills. What binds us together is our desire to make the vision of our founder, Roland Engel, a reality.
the dream

How It All Started

In December 2003 when Roland Engel, Senior Paster of Christian Family Centre, moved to Namibia from South Africa it was his dream to set up a resource centre for all people living in Namibia. A place full of information, support and love for those who need it. This dream is becoming  a reality with Hope for Life Foundation.

We want to be a resource vehicle bringing lasting change to Namibia and all who live in this great country. We will make projects of our own happen and we will partner with others to help make their projects a reality.

We can see so much need around us and we are willing to stand up and be counted as part of the solution.

A Word

From Our Chairman

Too many complain about all the things government should be doing to help society when in actual fact we who live in society should be doing all we can to make it better. That is why we have all gotten together behind this vision and to partner with government and the rest of society to say, “We will make it a better place.”

– Hanjo Schlabitz
