"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.

Miss Frances Steer, Former Head Teacher, Mount Waddy Primary School, Friendship, Jamaica

First of all, I want to tell the Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation thanks for everything they have done. It means to me that I am going to be a good person and be respectful to everyone around me. It also encourages me to be a hardworking, caring and honest person. I will excel in my school work, my relationship with God and allow my true potential to shine. I believe in myself that anything is possible. I will be respectful to my mother and father so that my days can be long on this earth.
