MIC has made a wonderful change in my life. It has made me improve in my work and to be a better person. This Foundation helps children with their high school fees through a scholarship and gives supplies to the school. They are also giving away tablets for your studies and much more. The Foundation was launched at the Mt. Waddy Primary School. They treated the students and gave us t shirts too. When the treat was over we all took pictures, and they were published in the newspaper and sent to other countries.

Mighty in Character was launched on April 14, 2014 at the Mt. Waddy Primary School. This Foundation was built to help students who attend Mt. Waddy. The Foundation will help the school with financial needs. The day Mighty in Character was launched we were treated with cake and ice-cream. We enjoyed ourselves. They took pictures of us, and we saw ourselves in the newspaper. MIC means a lot to me. It helps to motivate us to build moral values and to develop trust in God.
