Founder and Chairperson of Steven's Hope Dr. Lorne E. Parker

Recipient of Rotary's Highest Honour The Service Above Self Award, 2023
Dr. Lorne E. Parker and Steven's Hope, in collaboration with the Mozambique partners, provides direct oversight for all aspects of the school construction processes. This includes securing agreements with the Mozambique Ministry of Education officials, preparing and awarding construction contracts and providing direct oversight during the construction processes.  Though contract terms are negotiated directly by Steven’s Hope, The Maputo Rotary Club acts as our agent in Mozambique, entering into construction contracts on our behalf.

Dr. Parker travels to the construction/school sites at least once annually and stays in regular contact with our administrative partners via email, Zoom and old fashioned telephone calls.
He has an extensive background overseeing large scale construction projects, nationally and internationally making this the perfect fit for his retirement!
