"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.

First of all I want to tell the Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation thanks for everything you do for the school. You are Mighty in Character! You are a hardworking person of God. You are mighty and great to me and powerful in character. God bless you forever.
The Melbourne & Michael Folkes Foundation is an International non-profit organization with humanitarian initiatives in both Jamaica and the U.S.
The Foundation's vision is to help children and our youth to create their own pathway to success by recognizing and embracing the opportunities that exist around them and exhibit Mighty In Character traits with a no border no barrier mentality way of life.
To Inspire, educate, transform, guide and challenge the younger generation in the MIC Leader way and identifying future leaders who will champion the Foundation’s commitment to perpetual prosperity and preservation of its legacy.
This vision is becoming a reality as Michael implements a number of initiatives to improve educational opportunities, foster economic development, provide health and wellness programs and create a competitive platform to the students and wider community of Friendship, in the island nation of Jamaica, West Indies and the U.S.
