Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Foster Care, International, International Relief

Mission: Prince Ministry in South Africa exists to support The Fold, SA Children's Home which has been registered as a private hostel in South Africa. We currently have 24 children in our care. These are children of various backgrounds, but none of them had any type of a future. They now have love, good nutrition, and a good education to enable them to have a future. We hope they will make a difference in their country. These children are in individual homes with no more than 8 children per home, with a house mother to take care of them.

Results: September 2016 was our 6th anniversary of our first child to move into the Fold. We now have 3 homes which are full. We also started our own private school in 2016, which has creche up to the ninth grade. We need to raise the funds for our additional teacher in 2017 who covers up to the 9th grade.

Target demographics: children to have a better life, good nutrition and a better education

Geographic areas served: South Africa

Programs: 3 individual homes with 8 children in each home. plus our own school up to ninth grade.

Being part of The Fold Children's Home is one of the most fulfilling things I have done in my years of working, it is not just a job but a calling / passion. When I arrived at The Fold I immediately fell in love with the children and knew I was at the right place. At The Fold there is a great family bonding and strong relationships between Co-workers and Children. Everyday here is a challenge and just by being part of these kids life and realizing how privileged I am to be part of this great thing knowing that someday these children is South Africa's next generation. If you are at The Fold whether it is full time or just by being part, you definitely know that God is real!!!

I have worked with The Fold when I came to visit South Africa. They are helping children to have a safe environment where they can thrive and grow. The kids are happy and get many opportunities for their future because of living there. I am impressed with the system they have and hope to visit them again.

To put it simply, The Fold changed my life. My first visit to The Fold was in September-December of 2011. I had just graduated high school and did not know what to do with my life. I came to The Fold rather than starting college right off the bat. During my stay, my heart broke for the children here. I had such an amazing time that when I left, I knew I wanted to go to Bible College to get a Missions degree. Now I am in my senior year of college, an intercultural studies major, and I am completing my extended internship here in SA where most of my time will be spent at The Fold. I knew I could not live the rest of my life without returning here, and I am sure I will be back. The people here are visionaries with their hearts set on doing God's will. This work is not easy, and not even desirable by many, but it is diligently done because God has instructed them to do it. The love, care, and attention the children receive is incredible. I have seen several people come to The Fold and heard many others' stories, each person was changed in some way after being here. They not only give their all to make sure the children are well taken care of, they also go out of their way to help the volunteers in any way they can, whether it be emotionally, physically, or spiritually. The Fold is a fairly new organization, so many things are still in the making, but the visions and ideas of what it will be like in the future are equally as incredible as the work going on in the present. I am so glad I came here, and there is no other place I would rather be right now. I thank God for the people who answered God's call and share His love with children who so desperately need it.

Having visited The Fold Children's Home in South Africa two years ago, I can say confidently that all donations are gratefully received and used to the max! Paul and Micky Prince have sacrificially given their all, both their resources and their lives, to improving the lot of these needy children. Two years ago, my husband and I purchased and delivered school supplies to The Fold, in conjunction with a hunting trip to the area. Then, again last year, I sent a former student to The Fold for the summer, and had her bring a big suitcase full of clothing, school supplies, and toys for the children. The goal is to someday be able to conduct daily school classes at The Fold, as it is often difficult to afford to send them in to the nearest town for their education. The Fold relies on volunteers to help tutor the children, and to provide recreational opportunities for them. Any efforts beyond personal volunteers to help support this worthy act of love are greatly appreciated. One day, these children will grow up and begin to pay it forward, thus improving the lives of a new generation in South Africa.

Having visited The Fold Children's Home in the Limpopo region of South Africa over a year ago, my husband and I were impressed with the amazing work done by Paul & Micky Prince. They have dedicated their lives to the betterment of the lives of children in that region, who have been either orphaned or left to fend for themselves in a very difficult economic situation.

We have donated money, gently used clothing, school supplies, and other necessities to The Fold, and I can honestly say that every donation has been directed to the needs of the children, one hundred percent!

In addition, I encouraged and helped to send a former student of mine to also volunteer at The Fold for an extended stay, and she came away with inspiration to continue the work began by the Princes. A visit to The Fold changes ones world view--guaranteed!

The Prince Ministry practices good stewardship of any donations received, and they are constantly networking with individuals and organizations to further their work among the children. Amazing results have already occurred, and more to follow with added support.

I can't rave enough about the wonderful work taking place with the Prince Ministry in South Africa.

The Fold is such a wonderful place! Children from the nearby town of Vaalwater are being taken care of by stunning people who truly care about them. I was able to stay there for a few weeks last summer and was absolutely blown away by all that the Fold is doing for these kids. The children are valued and important and will one day be able to take all that they have learned at the Fold back into their community. I believe that the leadership being taught to the children at the Fold will help build a stronger South Africa one day.

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.

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.
