Vice Chairman | Board Secretary
John & Beverley Bossuyt
Founders | Managing Officers
John and Beverley were both born in Southern Manitoba and grew up working along with their families on the family farms. John engaged deeply within the family farm while Beverley involved herself within local community activities. From an early age Beverley exhibited a strong interest in children, youth and the broader community. Volunteering and teaching has always been a major component of Beverley’s life. For many years Beverley worked as an elementary school teacher and school principal. John and Beverley married in 1968 and have raised 3 daughters who are now raising families of their own. Now making Cochrane, Alberta, their primary residence John and Beverley have worked among the needy village people in Eastern Africa since 2008. From a very early age it was obvious that John was a “plant and animal” minded young man. Upon completing his formal education John assumed the responsibility of managing the large family dairy herd. While dairy farming became his primary activity and source of financial provision, horticultural related interests were always present. The fruits of his imagination and the labours of his hands can be clearly seen around the family farm to this day – some 40 plus years later. In 1979 John and Beverley relocated to the Calgary area along with their young family. Shortly thereafter John established his 1st formal landscaping service where he specialized in larger acreage design and construction services while Beverley focused her attention to the needs of their growing family. In 2008 John and Beverley shifted their focus to humanitarian work working among the needy village farmers of western Kenya before ultimately co-founding Humanity’s Promise Int’l in 2011.
