Our Story

How We Started

In 1999 spiritual leaders from different denominations and organisations in the Paarl valley and surrounding areas started conversations to collectively address the poverty challenges in the area.

A united vision to have an effective platform where funds, products and skills were distributed responsibly, inspired Valcare to officially open office in April 2003 and register as a Trust in 2004.

Since then, Valcare has been flowing like a connecting stream through the Valley, linking passionate funders and willing volunteers with hundreds of sustainable projects.

Where We Are Now

In 2017, Valcare converted into an Impact Funding Platform, enabling businesses and individuals to invest into Valcare member projects in order to generate a measurable social impact and ensure sustainable change in community.

Valcare is committed to the empowerment, development and upliftment of the people of the valley, by taking hands with partners to activate and enable social change in community.
