Our Board of Trustee's

The following people serve on the Hermanus Rainbow Trust's Board of Trustees. All Trustee's are volunteers.


Vivienne Owen - Patron

Vivienne Owen founded the Hermanus Rainbow Trust in 1997 and dedicated 16 years of her life to improving the lives of the orphans, vulnerable children and disadvantaged families living in the impoverished communities of the Overstrand. Her dedication to improving the "early childhood development" of under privileged children and providing them with hope and opportunity for a better future will always be remembered as her legacy.

The HRT "Social Enterprise"

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust has developed a "sustainability strategy" to limit the challenges of getting "grant funding" from government, funding agencies and business in these difficult economic times. The strategy is built around the establishment of a "Social Enterprise" in line with global trends.


Non-Profit Organisations - The Current Funding Model is NOT Sustainable

Why ? What are the alternatives ?

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust, like many other NPO’s / NGO’s, is threatened by the current "grant funding" models in South Africa, where most NPO’s are totally dependent on "grant funding from Government, Funding Agencies, Business, Individual Donors, Sponsors and fund raising events.
