"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.

The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation to me means that I should be Mighty In Character. It encourages me to be strong in everything I do. It helps me to be confident in myself and in everything I do. It helps me to believe in myself and to do my school work. It also helps me to achieve my goals and set them the right way. It also encourages me to build my faith, joy and peace.
