I have been blessed to be able to visit and help out at The Fold on three different occasions. The Fold is doing a wonderful work as they teach children to be responsible for themselves and those around them. The staff at The Fold have given their lives to be mentors for the children and to be respected members of South Africa. Each visit I have made I have seen growth in all areas including knowledge of the bible in each child. I truly believe that what they offer by taking care of the health and welfare of these children will give each one the opportunity to be who ever they want to be as they become responsible citizens of their communities... I pray that more people and organizations will take a look at what great things are happening and will happen in the future at The Fold.
This is a tremendous organization! They are very caring people, who are meeting a great need in South Africa.
The Fold has been a work of Prince ministry in South Africa for years. Their systematic approach to every part of taking care of the children in this hope is very noticeable. Their attention to quality in provision for the children shows in the structure, physical and spiritual. Their commitment is for a lifetime, the lifetimes of the children in their care.
I have worked with Paul and Micky at The Fold Childrens Home for years now. They have been inspirational in their collection of data, developing resources, and acquiring the information needed to be not only legal but to absolutely be caring of the children placed with them. If you ever need an excuse to do something good and want to do it in South Africa, I'm sure they would greatly appreciate your help. Look now, support financially, or plan a trip to contribute to their needs at the facility in South Africa.
August, 2014 will be my 4th trip there from St. Louis, Mo. It is so rewarding to visit and work with the children. That children's home is such a blessing to those children. There is so much love there for each other and their faith is so strong. God bless them all.
Some of those had no or little schooling before going there and now are getting the best.
I did jobs around there and played with the children. The last time I was ill most of the time, so I did sewing away from them just in case.
I am 77 years old and enjoy those children.
These great Christians sold everything, moved to South Africa forever. They have purchased land, have 2 children's home and have taken in 16 children so far. The children are being raised in loving Christian homes. And going from no schooling to getting the best. I have been there 3 times for a total of 8 weeks.
They are doing a great job. I am also a donor and every cent goes to those children and what is needed to raise them in a loving Christian way. Micky and Paul are both military retires and have their own income.
This ministry selflessly gives to make each child feel loved. They are Jesus' hands and feet and through their actions they share Jesus with each child
As an individual who spent time in orphanages, I'm impressed with the 1:1 time given to each child The pictures show the joy of Jesus!
The love is contagious and makes me want to be a part of it all. I've taken the extra step to make plans to personally visit.
These people have a passion for their work! My wife and I will go next fall and volunteer. They have touched the lives of many kids.

The Princes visited in South Africa, saw the need to help deserate children, came back to the United States, got rid of their possessions and went to help those in need in South Africa. Each child is treated, loved, cherished, and schooled as if each one were the only one. Love abounds at "The Fold".
The Fold have answered the call to take care of orphans in their distress and they are doing.a fantastic job of it. They are becoming sustainable with garden and game and use every resource God gives them. They are training young men and women to be Godly and the changes that will come from them are yet to be known, but I am excited to see what those will be.
Whilst on holiday in Waterberg Feb 2013, my children and I visited The Fold Children's home. We left a few hours feeling truly humbled by the selflessness, hard work and dedication of Micky and Paul and the wonderful house mothers in the team. I found myself particularly drawn to the the beautiful spirit of house mother Fatima Mahlase. We are in touch and her wisdom and aura of peace and positivity still regulalry captivate me, what a special woman to have in such a special place. Paul and Micky are tow of the most godly people I have ever met. We are returning in Feb 2014 to visit The Fold and show our support again.
I greatly enjoyed my time at the fold. While I was saddened by the fact that Paul and Mickey were in the states at the time that I visited, I still had a blast working with the kids. Baby Lucky still holds a dear spot in my heart as do the others. I wish I could go back in the near future just to see the progress they have made. But it seems it will be a while. Paul and Mickey are amazing Christian leaders and do a fantastic job managing this ministry. I love them dearly!
I support this organization. I keep up with their news updates and news letters. I have talked with people that have visited "The Fold" so know first hand what a wonderful home this is for children that are no longer wanted or cared for by their families. They make sure that they are taken to the doctor to keep up with medications and to get medicine when they are sick. Bit by bit, child by child they are making a huge impact in South Africa and it will spread even further as these kids grow up. Their education and even tutoring is closely followed. They are working hard to meet a need in that community to make a difference in children's lives and I am sure impacting the adults they employ as well. What a blessing to be involved in this ministry.
Over the summer, I volunteered at The Fold Children's Home: South Africa for five weeks. Paul and Micky Prince, who run the Home, are incredible people who are giving the 16 kids who live there a hope and future. Not only are the children learning what it's like to live in a family, but they are also learning what it means to be a person of character, since they have such wonderful examples. This organization is raising children to realize their potential and become so much more than their culture allows them to dream they can be. Each kid is worth it, and change will happen in the slums in South Africa, one step at a time, because of this organization.
Visited The Fold in Sept 2012 and was amazed at the great work Paul and Mickey are doing! The kids are so precious! Great place!
I volunteered to help with the children while they were on break from school. it was a blessing to experience the faith and hope that Prince Ministry gives to the children of South Africa. Paul and Micky and their staff are amazing with the children they have in in their home. It was such fun to participate and experience the smiles and love of the children they have at The Fold. Anybody who visits will be blessed by the experience.
Prince Ministry runs a children's home in South Africa. The progress in the last two years have been nothing short of amazing. They have gone from having one home with 7 children to having two homes with 16 children. They already have a third home ready to open for another 8 chldren, as soon as they can raise the money to support this additional home.
Everyone involved in the support of the Children's home understands the importance of breaking the cycle these children were born into. The children are being surrounded by people who have excellent morals and a loving nature. Much effort is being spent on education/academics, as well as teaching responsibility, so these children will grow up to be capable, loving adults.
The organization is supported by the local community, and caring communities around the globe. So much has been accomplished through volunteers and donations of material goods. We have volunteers who handle a variety of services, including administrative tasks, construction of every type, tutoring, mailing services, public relations, printing/publishing, accounting, maintenance around the property, artistic talents, and the list goes on.
With all of these services donated by volunteers, it allows us to concentrate our monetary donations on the direct support of the Children, and building additional homes to help more Children.

My husband and I visited The Fold in October, 2011. We interacted with the children and toured the grounds. We were impressed with Micky and Paul's obvious dedication to the children's welfare. Knowing just a bit about the red tape that exists for NPO's to operate there, we were also impressed with the progress they've made since moving there. The potential of this home is so very great. In my opinion, Micky and Paul are worthy of financial support and prayers.
I spent a month in South Africa with the Prince's last February. Even though the chidren's home is still fairly new, the impact that they are making in the kid's lives is amazing. Can't wait to see them grow in the upcoming years and experience (hopefully, first hand again) the ways that God is changing lives at the Fold.
I had the opportunity to visit The Fold with another non-for-profit to do painting and work in the houses. We met Paul and Mickey and were introduced to the kids and house mothers. We were received warmly and made connections right away. I was impressed by the organization of the orphanage and the methods used.
My family is visiting Prince Ministry because we are considering moving to South Africa to work with them as missionaries. We have asked a lot of questions and spent a lot of time observing day to day operations. We have been very pleased with all aspects of their ministry. They are doing a wonderful job in working with orphans and vulnerable children in the area. I highly recommend a visit to their property, The Fold.
