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.

The Princes' - Paul & Mickey have dedicated their lives to the success of this home. They have left everything to do this and worthy of your support for the work that they have done setting up the home and making it a home for these children to feel loved and to grow and learn. They are kind , decent and loving people.

The Fold is an excellent place for children to get the extra attention, education and medical help that their families are unable to provide. The facilities are well kept and attractive. The education the children receive is not limited to school work. They also get to experience growing fruits and vegetables. They learn life skills. They learn about God. I highly recommend this ministry.

It has been my great pleasure to support Paul and Micky in their endeavor to help the children of Africa. I knew them when they first started talking about the mission and have admired them as they made it a reality. They give of themselves selflessly and I feel blessed to have them as Christian mentors.

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.

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.

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.

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.
