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 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.
Prince Ministry supports the Fold in South Africa. They take care of children in need. I feel a great sense of satisfaction investing in the lives of these children. It's my goal to gather to us, others of like passion. Our 30 year goal is to have as many as 8 houses with as many as 8 children in each house. Our own school is quickly becoming a reality and a dream come true. We will obviously be needing increasing support as we grow toward the end goal. We are pleased to report that awareness and support of this ministry is growing.
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.
