The visionary founders who conceptualised the dream.
Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg has always aimed to bring hope and positive change to the lives of the people that surround her.
Her journey towards fulfilling this purpose started when many of the La Motte workers who used to live on the farm, moved to Dennegeur, a modern workers village developed by the family and just a short distance from the estate in the Franschhoek Valley. With the original workers houses available, Hanneli’s dream of creating a place of change and her vision of rest, restoration and reconciliation, had an address.
Now these words could resonate in a place of prayer and with Hanneli’s main focus on assisting communities in the transition from disharmony to in Harmonie. This process took time and dedication and with the support of her husband, Hein Koegelenberg, nine years later, Hanneli’s dream of creating a place of change became reality.
in Harmonie officially opened in 2015.
