4Change believes that change within a given society, which ultimately leads to global change, starts with the individual. We believe in raising and empowering champions that will lead change within their communities, which will in-turn impact our nation and the world at large.
The 4Change Foundation was formed in 2008 by Dr. Maxwell Holland to be an effective catalyst for change in South Africa, on the continent and globally. Dr. Holland is driven by his desire to see the African people flourish. His passion and purpose was to create a vehicle and platform that would stimulate and implement programs that give birth to sustainable solutions.
To create a global community of private and public partnerships with the necessary leadership-skills, resources, training and economic opportunities required in the redesign, development and transformation of 3rd world nations.
Our passion is People! It is fuelled by the conviction that we are “Changing our world, by giving others a chance to change theirs”.
