Ian & Janine Maxwell

Co-Founders, CEO & COO | Heart for Africa 


At the age of 24, Janine Maxwell founded what would become one of the most successful marketing companies in Canada. On 9/11 she found herself a part of thousands fleeing New York City. This life-changing event sent Janine on a search for the meaning of life. Her journey took her to Africa where she encountered the AIDS pandemic, hunger and disease. Together, Janine and her husband, Ian, co-founded Heart for Africa.


In 2009, the non-profit purchased 2,500-acres of land and called it Project Canaan in Eswatini, Africa. In 2012, Ian and Janine moved to Project Canaan where they have lived since sharing HOPE throughout the country. They are now the parents of 371 Swazi children.

HOPE Lives at Project Canaan

HOPE LIVES HERE is a comprehensive look behind the scenes of Project Canaan: A Place of HOPE, a development project and children’s home that Janine and her husband Ian are building in Africa. 


This book is the heartfelt and often heart-wrenching story of their journey and path toward growing promising futures for hundreds of orphaned or abandoned children.


Janine Maxwell breaks down details of their Hunger, Orphans, Poverty, Education initiatives designed to bring HOPE to the kingdom of Eswatini, and much more. Joys and successes are equally shared alongside lows and betrayals.
