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.
PRINCE MINISTRY IN SOUTH AFRICA Is an excellent non Profit that meeting the real needs of children in need. I support them and believe others should as well.
I have known Paul and Mickey Prince for almost 20 years. They are two dedicated people who love the Lord and want to serve Him. They also have a heart for children to be given a chance not just for survival but to make a difference in their lives. They have overcome many obstacles in the time they have now spent in that part of Africa. They have improved the property and built the necessary housing to do their work....take in children who need a home, a place to grow and develop into adulthood. They believe they have been led by God to serve in this way. And they are determined to make a difference. They have inspired others to take the same step of servanthood. In telling their story to churches, to friends, and getting the word out over internet to reach those who would be interested, capable and willing, they have been successful in their work. They have a vision that God has given them to minister, to love and care for those little children by taking them into THE FOLD---by giving them an opportunity---a life! They report regularly on their work and how they have used funds and donations in the most effective way to accomplish their goals. I pray the Lord will continue to bless them and their work.
It is amazing the work that is being done for the children in this home. They have grown so much in their ability and education. There are so many more that can be helped, if only the money could be donated on a larger scale.
We have supported Paul and Mickey since the beginning of their decision to go to Africa. We are amazed at their obedience to Gods word, selflessness to serve the children and people of South Africa. They are by far the most responsible and steward-conscious missionaries we know. We are proud of them and their work. May God continue to bless them.
I was privileged to help Prince Ministries for a week while visiting South Africa. Being able to work with the children at The Fold was the most amazing experience ever! To read to them and play with them and help them to learn about Jesus was truly wonderful. They are living in wonderful surroundings now, where they get the influence of house parents who really care about them. The children who are there are orphans and after they get adjusted to rules, they do very well. It was a learning experience for both the children and myself. Language did not get in the way, we all felt love towards each other.
I was here when the Princes settled in South Africa. When they arrived they had an idea that they would be part of something that would make a difference in this country, and in specifically Limpopo. Shortly after they arrived they learned that they would not be part of something, but rather would be something. From that day on they have been undaunted in their approach to learn what needed to be learned, file what must be filed, figure out what needed to be figured out so that they could realize their dream of caring for children of need in this area. Bravo!
Prince Ministry of South Africa allowed me to have an adventure of a lifetime while working to help them with their missionary work in South Africa. I was truly blessed to have had this experience of working with the missionaries that are doing so much to help the people of South Africa to improve their lives. In the local community, I witnessed much cooperation with other missionaries in the area to lay the ground work, set in motion and continue to do good for others. I participated in the preparations and distributions at weekly soup kitchens. I attended weekly bible classes and church services led by area missionaries and local Christian to help spread the Word to others and give them hope for their tomorrows. Prince Ministry supports families by collecting and distributing food and home supply boxes for families and school supplies for children. All this work is in addition to The Fold Children's Home which is the main mission of Prince Ministry. The Fold is in the building stages of becoming a Children's Home. The land they have purchased and the buildings will be come homes to local children that have no home. It will be run like a true Christian home with a set of hired parents and local foster children living in a home like a family. The house and help will be provided by The Fold. What has already been accomplished and what the dreams are for The Fold is truly amazing! The possibilities of what Prince Ministry can do for the people and children of South Africa to give them a start on a productive life are miracles in motion. I was privileged to be able to do some work at The Fold. Amongst all the little tasks that were performed, I sewed hems on donated sheets which were cut down and resized for use on the children's beds. Scraps from the sheets were also made into pillow cases. Now that I am home, I continue to encourage others to help Prince Ministry through conversations and presentations to local groups about my experiences in South Africa. By supporting the works of Prince Ministry of South Africa, you too will have a hand in helping others achieve success in their lives.
