The Fold is an excellent place for children to get the extra attention, education and medical help that their families are unable to provide. The facilities are well kept and attractive. The education the children receive is not limited to school work. They also get to experience growing fruits and vegetables. They learn life skills. They learn about God. I highly recommend this ministry.
I spent 5 weeks here a couple of summers ago. It's amazing to see the work that Mr. Paul and Mrs. Micky are doing at The Fold SA. They are a valued member of their community and mean so much to their kids. Uncle Paul and Auntie Micky are a huge inspiration!
They do wonderful things for these kids. They go above and beyond what most people would to to make these kids feel loved and special.
The Fold is an amazing haven/school for children. I was privileged to volunteer there during a recent mission trip to South Africa. Children live in small group homes with a house mother, who cares for them. There is a separate school building and teaching staff. The owners, Paul and Mickey, are wonderful, loving people who have given their hearts to this school. the children there learn and grow in such a loving and healthy environment. Paul and Mickey do so much with limited resources.
Earlier this year I was able to spend nearly 3 months at The Fold setting up a computer lab in the school to enhance the educational opportunity of these children. I also had the time to really get to know the children and listen to their hopes/desires for their future. Without Prince Ministry and The Fold, these dreams would not exist, and could not be cultivated. These children are being given every chance possible to make an incredible life for themselves, and their future families. I have really come to love everyone of them.
I volunteered at The Fold through Son Safaris in May and June 2017. What amazing group of people!! Paul, Mickey, Philip and Rheta definitely have hearts for all these children! I had a wonderful time there and was amazed to see the love and caring for each individual
child at The Fold.
The Fold has the most wonderful people who have a heart for Africa and the children there. I have perosnally been to the Fold and think about them often!
I have been aware of The Fold for a while now, and I was so amazed by their story that I just had to go. What they are doing for the children there pulls on my heart strings, so in October, I will be traveling there to serve. I am looking very forward to meeting the children and working for this wonderful organization. They have done amazing work there and could use the support of anyone who has a heart for the work that they are doing!
I have followed this ministry from its inception. It is excellent. Each child is loved band nurtred. All are cared for and taught a better way to do life.
I am delighted to see what God is doing here
I had the opportunity and the privilege to volunteer at the Fold, once a week for 5 months last year and what an honour that was! It was evident that the 'du Plessis' and the 'Princes' have huge hearts towards the children and showered each child with so much love and affection. The impact that this organisation is having on the children's lives will set them up for life, allowing them to go so much further than they ever would have before. While being there I fell in love with each child, playing games, doing dramas and art activities with them. It was amazing to see the work they were doing within the school and providing the kids with education and the hearts of the teachers. The house set up is great as it allows every child to feel like they are part of a home and the mums are just awesome! Praying and cheering you guys on and I look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future!
The Prince Ministry at The Fold is an exceptional program. They give the children in their care love, security, good food, and make sure they get a good education. I f you have never been to South Africa before you must consider going to this ministry. Even you can only stay a couple of weeks you can meet the children and talk to Micky and Paul about their ministry. You can help the children with their school work or even just play with them and get to know them. They have a wonderful school that they recently have built right on their property. If are looking for a ministry to support please consider this one.
We keep n contact with this ministry and the more we hear from them we grow deeper in love with them. We are planning a trip visit them soon. They give so much one on one with the children under their care. They teach then they are loved not only by them, but by their heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. They do an excellent job of sending pictures and keeping us informed. I feel that I am almost right there with them. We work on our church missions board and I can tell you that not all missionaries keep you as well informed.
It has been amazing watching The Fold grow in leaps and bounds, doing amazing things with the little they have.... imagine what they can do with even more. Nothing gets wasted at the Fold, they try to be as economical as possible and as self sustaining as possible. It is great to see how these people always put the needs of the children before themselves
"When we arrived for the first time to serve at The Fold I felt like I was home." These were the precious words of one of my college students who served with us. The environment created by Paul and Mickey to provide a safe Christ-filled home and opportunities to get an education for the children living at the home is impeccable. The love and guidance shown to the kids is beautiful. For us as a partner which brings teams to help with day to day life at The Fold they truly allow us to help. Our teams work hard, get hands dirty, and love on the precious kids. We absolutely look forward to a lifetime relationship with The Fold, because it feels like home.
These guys have a heart of gold. They are in it for all the right reasons.
The Fold is an amazing place that has a really big vision for the kids. They have so much love, and it really feels like a home. It was a pleasure getting to volunteer with them and I hope I'll someday get the chance to in the future. What a beautiful ministry!
It has been my great pleasure to support Paul and Micky in their endeavor to help the children of Africa. I knew them when they first started talking about the mission and have admired them as they made it a reality. They give of themselves selflessly and I feel blessed to have them as Christian mentors.
I have known the Princes for almost thirty years and I cannot think of anyone more dedicated, loving and selfless, to care for these children. Paul & Micky's continued sacrifice is making a difference in the lives of these little children who are now receiving the love and care they need and deserve. Paul & Micky are both retired, receive their own incomes, and do not use any of the ministry funds for personal use. Consider donating to the Prince Ministry in South Africa to help Paul & Micky continue to make a difference in the world.
Prince ministry is a great non-profit that helps kids who are in need in South Africa. Please consider this ministry when choosing a non-profit organization to support.
The Fold is an amazing place of people who love the Lord and show that love to children in need. I have been blessed by my opportunity to serve with them! Go serve at the Fold! You will be a blessing and will be blessed!
I am the treasurer for the Fold, SA Children's Home. This is the organization that Prince Ministry supports. This year has been the greatest year yet, for moving forward. This year another house was opened, and now we have 24 children in care. We also opened our own school up through 3rd grade. The children are doing so much better in their new environment, with teachers who really love what they are doing. We are in the process of building a chicken coop, and enlarging the garden, so we can save money and be more self sustaining. We want to add another teacher next year, but we must raise the $1,000 monthly to pay for the teacher. This teacher would be taking care of 4th, 5th and maybe 6th grade.
The Fold continues to grow. Due to issues with red tape, the third house is still not open. But the infrastructure continues to improve and we will be ready to accept more children hopefully early next year. The 15 children we have are all doing well. We have a new couple that has recently joined The Fold and their skills are making a huge difference.
We visited The Fold close to Vaalwater during March. We where impressed with what we saw there. The people are giving their everything to uplift children with poor circumstances. The children all looked happy and well cared for. What impressed us was the houses which was run by house mom's and the fact that brothers and sisters are kept together in one house and not divided between 2 houses. The school which the Fold are running was of high standard. We could see that love and care for the children was the main purpose of the Fold. We were so blessed by visiting them.
