Our Story

How We Started

In 1999 spiritual leaders from different denominations and organisations in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley 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 as a Trust in April 2003.

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 was converted into an Impact Funding Platform, and even though our direction has changed, our values endure.

We remain committed to the empowerment, development and upliftment of disadvantaged communities.

We build and improve relationships with existing and potential partners.

We create a sustainable impact through funding to improve the quality of life and prosperity for all living in the Berg River Valley.
