Petrus Grové

Non-Executive Director

Petrus obtained his BA, Hons-ThB from the North West University.

In his role as Managing Director and Co-founder of MD Foundation PTY (Ltd),  Missio Dei South Africa NPO and Missio Dei Education NPO, he believes that we will see change if positive people start to work together. His vision is to help create and establish sustainable models that can help solve some of the socio-economic issues we face in South-Africa. As a Christian he feels urged by the love of God to find practical solutions for the challenges at hand.

Missio Dei Education was started to address some of the educational challenges we face in South Africa. Many children are dropping out of school because they lack the much needed basics of foundation phase education. In July 2015 a remedial class center was started where children could attend after school and receive education in Mathematics and English.  Currently there are 7 centers of this nature in Meqheleng in Ficksburg as well as in Soshanguve, Mamelodi and Waltloo around Pretoria.

With Missio Dei being a shareholder in Shangoni, Shangoni’s commitment to social upliftment has been cemented in the DNA of the organisation.
