The Real Heroes

Valcare is an Impact Funding Platform that serves as an effective connector between funders, projects and beneficiaries in the Paarl valley and surrounding areas. They work collaboratively to activate and enable social change in community in a sustainable way.
Social change and Local Economic Development benefits the Tourism Sector and has great value in connecting with local communities and networking with the role players to identify and develop economic opportunities. The Drakenstein Local Tourism Association, Paarl & Wellington, is excited about the work that Valcare is doing and are looking forward to collaborate in creating opportunities together for the community.
The real heroes are the passionate people that are working together to collaboratively activate and enable social change in community. Watch Valcare’s new overview video to get a clear understanding of who Valcare is and what they are doing to act as change-catalyst.

They also regularly invite guests who are experts in their fields to host these workshops in collaboration with their gardening team.
