Mission and Vision


It is our vision to care for, invest in and uplift the community, environment and it’s people of the greater Hartbeespoort.

We will be doing this by involving the community and all stakeholders in building a lasting and tangible legacy.

This can only be done through solid partnerships between private-sector, business and government where we will provide a conduit and solid platform.

Infrastructure development, Job-creation and social upliftment will be at the foreground in the Harties Foundation.

The official NPC & BBBEE and CSI partner

Rudy Joles born in the Free State has a passion for people and the environment. With a strong horticultural background, managerial skills and ability to bring communities and people together he has managed to bring many sustainable projects to life. 

He believes in a collective partnership and will always and everywhere involve as many role-players as possible to ensure the best possible end-result.

Mr AJ Fraser

Title: CFO and Director

Andrew is a Chartered Accountant (S.A.) by training and a serial entrepreneur by experience. His passion is to help people and his life experience has largely been in the SMME sector focusing on all the different elements required to operate a successful back office.

He is a devout Christian who sees his calling as helping those less fortunate than himself. His no-nonsense style sometimes makes him appear aloof and his “get it done” attitude doesn’t always endear him to others but he works hard at building relationships that counteract these attributes
