our founders

Inceba Trust was founded by Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg in 2017:

“A dream was stirred in my heart for a Trust that would serve the children of the Cape Winelands and bring them hope. For relationships to be restored, quality education to be provided and Biblical teachings to form their foundations.”

That’s the meaning of Inceba in isiXhosa – ‘mercy’.”
