The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation means to me that I am going to work harder, achieve more, serve God and obey my parents. It also encourages me to be confident in anything I am doing. The Foundation helps me to have a high self-esteem and be courageous. Mighty in character- MIC

To me MIC means that I should be on the right track, to study my books and to read and write better. MIC means Mighty in Character. I am a very mighty person in my character. I love to come first in my class. I am a bright girl. I do not want to waste time. MIC also means to do the things that are right and loving. I like to share, and I respect everyone because I am respectful and patient. I am MIC.

We want your help! Do you have skills and time to share?

As the Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation begins the first stages of its four initiatives we will need more than donations of money. Personnel are just as valuable, and our initiatives will need a variety of skills and amounts of time donated by people who care and want to share the Foundation's mission.

If you have medical, educational, building or training qualifications, skills or experience and want to be a part of the Foundation's initiatives, then we'd like to hear from you.

Please get in touch letting us know your skill set and availability via our Contact Page.
