"The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving." – Albert Einstein. The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation is an organization geared towards community development. It will in the near future assist students financially to acquire a better education. Youngsters will benefit by gaining skills that will enable them to be more productive and allow them to become well rounded in life.

MIC has made a change in my life, and that is why I believe in MIC. They gave us food, shirts and other things and that is why I will never forget them. I feel so happy and proud of them for giving us things that we want. I am saying thank you for everything that you have done for us.

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.
