Jeannine (Sidonia) Ferreira - Chairperson

Sidonia (Jeannine) Ferreira is a business women and entrepreneur at heart. She has endless enthusiasm, positive energy and a drive to make a difference in the world. Her spiritual connection to God is very strong and evident in all her ventures. Her passion for Africa and the habitat it offers, is contagious and life changing for those she encounters. Although her roots are firmly embedded in South Africa, she enjoys different cultures, countries and connecting people and places through business and upliftment initiatives.

She is the owner of small property development companies and has served and is serving on several Homeowners Associations which included serving on the VMA of Eden Island in Seychelles for 7 years and the Riverside Park development in Nelspruit for 10 years. Her back ground in architecture ensured her involved in many commercial developments.
As a long standing Board Member of the Home Owners Association of Eden Island, Sidonia was responsible for the infrastructure planning and auditing portfolio as well as environmental awareness and procedures campaigns, as this is her true field of interest. Sidonia focussed her further studies and research specifically on the detrimental effects of pesticides on the environment at large. She researched the areas of human side effects, to the effects on animals, their food as well as on some insect varieties. The research also included the effect of pests on building materials and organic and environmentally friendly solutions in the market.

Sidonia established the AutoTec Foundation in 2007 as part of her giving-back humanitarian philosophy. The AutoTec Foundation gave her a platform to launch many environmental and upliftment programs in Mpumalanga, South Africa. Her philosophy of “if you change the children, you change the world” was very effective and more than 10 000 children benefitted from the Foundation’s intervention programs. Sidonia was the founder and COO of the AutoTec Foundation until she was required to change the name due to the sale of the AutoTec Motor Dealer Group. The name was changed to Earth’s Call Foundation in 2014.

Jeannine also currently serves as an Emissary, Advisor, Member of Cabinet, and as Secretary of Environmental Protection of the state of Southern Cherokee Nation and Red Fire People (SCNRFP).

The ECF Foundation has since changed their focus to include global environmental projects, food security and upliftment projects, Africa being their priority as a whole.
Sidonia’s involvement in UKAA (United Kingdoms of Africa Association) and T4D (Trade for Development) is also fundamental to ensure a percentage of commercial initiative profits are channelled into a structured upliftment program in every African country and more, as part of T4D’s humanitarian commitment.

As current chairperson of ECF, she follows a strict people-centric philosophy, guided by her own strict code of conduct and an understanding of the need of the people first, the conservation of the environment they live in and ultimately sound interventions that result in sustainable profit. The utilization of the ecosystem and the earth’s resources, with carefully planned and executed green intervention projects, will result in abundant socio-economic growth ensuring a sustainable independent economy and a people fulfilled.

“Our gentle intervention and upliftment methods are inspired by God and it therefore stimulates, and guarantees the sustainability of our ECF projects, and that of its partners.”
