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!
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.
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 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 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!
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!
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.
I went to the Prince Ministry. I was so blessed! I could see the love and passion that the staff have for the children!! The place was so beautiful and clean! I could really felt the love of God!

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.
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.
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.
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.
