We, at Kwalata, are involved in the upliftment of the local community through donating meat from hunted game to The Fold, and others in need, as well as funding and fundraising.

In particular, Kwalata chose The Fold, a registered orphanage for children abandoned due to AIDS and other social problems, providing them with food, a loving home and ensuring their education.

We extend the invitation to our clients to bring some relief to the struggles of Africa.

Clients are encouraged to bring unwanted children’s clothing, toys, educational materials and books or alternatively donate monies to this worthy cause. Please contact us for The Fold’s bank account details. Please leave all items of clothing and toys at the office for their collection.

The Fold

The Fold is a place of love and refuge for orphaned children who have no other family to take care of them. The children we take in are orphans, from 4 years old. Our goal is to invest in these children for them to make a difference in the future of South Africa and of course their lives. Siblings are not split up unless the older children are a disruption. The children are raised with good moral character in a loving and secure environment. They attend church every Sunday and are taught to be respectful to their elders and each other.

We hope to bring contagious joy to the lives of those who otherwise would have little or nothing at all.

The Fold is located on a farm outside Vaalwater and has family units with up to 8 children with a house mother in each household. We wish to have at least 8 households in the near future. There is a junior school about one kilometer from the farm with about 10-15 children per classroom. We are involved with the teaching as well as individual instruction at home. School is taught in English, but the children speak their African language when at The Fold. The schooling provided will be up to matric, with the possibility of university based on each child’s ability, or vocational training. In future we hope to make computer training available. In addition to the schooling the children learn basic skills such as cooking, cleaning, sewing, gardening and taking care of farm animals. We wish to help these children to identify and pursue their dreams.
